With a week and a bit to go here is the final plan:
10.45 Depart Southern Cross from the location in the google link posted earlier (may just be me.)
11.00 Meet Fed Square in front of the big screen (I will be the silly looking bald guy on a black Aprilia)
11.15 Depart Fed Square along the north bank of Yarra, 13km leg to Abbotsford (heaps of time)
12.00 Meet for lunch at Abbotsford Convent. Anyone out of batteries can get the train.
1.15 Depart Convent. 9km leg to Melbourne Zoo
1.45 Meet Melb Zoo (suggestions where). Anyone out of batteries can get the train.
2.00 Depart zoo for another 9km leg to Docklands.
2.30 Meet up for a drink at Docklands or shoot through. I will be planning at least one beer by then before getting the train back to Ballarat later.
Anyone know clear spot where the trail meets the zoo in case we split up? No biggie.
Anyone know a good spot in Docklands with bike room to meet up after? Or we can wing it.
