Our colleagues from the Friends of the Bendigo Kilmore Rail Trail (FBKRT) have extended an invitation to MBUG for a joint ride in Melbourne today. The ride will have an Hellenic theme as it will link the two Greek communities of Richmond and Oakleigh.
After meeting near Richmond in Gosches Paddock you will explore the Gardiners Creek and Scotchmans Creek trails before continuing the Hellenic theme with a Greek lunch in Oakleigh.
The route you will follow has been finalised and can be viewed at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27334690
Depending on the time available after lunch you will either ride or catch the train at Oakleigh to the CBD for your train back to Craigieburn.
All sealed surfaces so the route is suitable for all types of bike
The two groups will meet in Gosches Paddock at 1015 before departing along the Yarra Trail. See meeting point in the track file (link above) or at http://g.co/maps/d4txy
MBUG riders should meet at Craigieburn station in time to board the 0846 train to Flinders St Station (FSS) where you will arrive at 0930. You will have time for a pit stop and/or a quick coffee before leaving FSS no later than 1000 to ride through Birrarung Marr and on down to Gosches Paddock to meet our FBKRT colleagues at 1015.
