Hi Everyone,

Can you put me down for this one, there is a 90% chance I will be able to attend this one, definitely would love to head down to Lorne again, one of my fav routes that I will be taking home afterwards.

Spent some time down along the Great Ocean Road a few weeks ago when my parents were out here from the UK, and found one of the best roads to have some fun on.

Thanks J

Great food there, we stopped there for our work Christmas dinner a few years ago. Also worth a stop is the Aireys Inlet brewery, they do an amazing salt beer, grab one to take home!

I was hoping to make this one because a guy I know is holding an art exhibition down there over this weekend (at Qdos Arts on Allanvale Rd, stop in if youíve got time), however, Iím sick to death of just about every road from Melbourne to Geelong at the moment and just canít face it for a Ďfuní weekend!

Have fun all, looks like perfect weather this weekend!

I'm planning to ride through Bacchus Marsh around 9:00am, but rather than head to Geelong and then the GOR will be taking an alternate scenic route.

Will hopefully be meeting a couple of mates at Bulla.  Then can meet at Bacchus, if that suits.

Hi, I am not sure I can make it to Bacchus Marsh that early, I have to get down from Woodend, and gotta sort the kids out first before I leave.

That route looks similar to the one I plan to take on the way back, with a few nice sweeping bends as well.

I've booked for 20, but Phil and Nigel are late possibles, but I'm not concerned (nor I'm sure they) with a couple of extras.  Lorne Hotel has confirmed my 20 lunch booking. 

I advised that people will arrive from 12:00pm on, we'll sit down to lunch around 12:20pm - 12:30pm, order by around 1:00pm, but this can of course be later.  For any early birds, the table is booked for OzSTOC.

For those coming from Robe, Kev has advised the GoogleMaps indicates a 5 hour ride, but please don't rush, the Hotel website indicates Bistro hours are 12.00noon to late, 365 days a year, so there's no need to rush for a meal.

Looks like we're in for a nice day, 25C, little chance of rain, and a gentle on shore breeze.

See yuse all tomorrow.

The ride back to Geelong via Apollo Bay was nice too. Beautiful weather and views.

What an amazing day to be out riding, perfect temp, sun shining, had such a long time to stare at the ocean after getting stuck in traffic along the great Ocean road. Thanks everyone for turning up, the food was great b

Food was great, as was the food at Robe last night.  No Guinness at Lorne despite it being St Paddy's day so didn't drink anything today.  Just as well I had two pints at Robe last night.

Safe at home, I just got in the door about 15 mins ago.

That sun in the eyes all the way home was a pain.

Sad to hear that, especially as it was your post that made me think I could do two RTE's in as many states in under twenty four hours.  I've settled in to my accommodation at Terang.
Well done .  A bit annoyed plans got changed for me but will definitely catchup next time bud. I am off to Bermagui on wednesday for a week on the bike so i am looking forward to that.

Stay safe

It was a good catch up with everyone.

It took me way longer than anticipated to get home, what with a couple of wrong turns  :|||| and then the A300 to Balarat being closed and a massive detour through Coopers Bridge (yeah I've never heard of it myself), snakes in the road (no photo, you'll have to take my word for it).

My plan to NOT ride through the countryside when the sun is setting to avoid those kangaroos completely back-fired on me, left at about 2:30pm didn't arrive home until after 6pm...

I would upload a couple of photos but it says I can't.
