Join us for a big day today as we cover uncharted territory (for MBUG) on this great ride along the Eastlink Trail from Heatherdale to Carrum.
The plan is to catch the 0843 Metro from Craigieburn to our start point at Heatherdale. After a quick coffee in the local McDonalds McCafe (I know, I know, but coffee shops are non-existent in this neck of the woods on a Sunday), we will ride the Eastlink trail to Carrum. We will have lunch at Carrum before catching the Metro back to Craigieburn, arriving there about 1630 at the latest.
Don’t forget your Myki!
