Cool2 Central Victorian (Mal) Function, 27 & 28 Nov '10

Central Victorian Malfunction Rally: 26, 27 & 28 November, 2010. That makes it Friday and Saturday nights.

Campsite at the end of Hopkins Rd, which is off the Vaughan Drummond Rd, near Glenluce which is NE of Dalesford. Lovely bush setting by the Loddon River (which is more like a large stream at this point.) See map kindly put up by Mel, on post 157.

There is a ride organised for 10 am, 27th Saturday November leaving from the campsite. About 160 km, lots of dirt, Tinnman will lead the ride, but if you can't get there in time we will provide route directions and mark the odd tricky junction so you can do it independently.
We will stop in Maldon or Newstead for those that need to vote.

BYO everything - water, beer, food, toilet paper and trowel.

Pubs near by, but not at the campsite.

See post #84 for local towns and what they have to offer in the way of supplies.

The best map, and the only accurate map, for the area is the Haymans Maps, Dalesford-Castlemaine-Ballarat Forest Activities Map. (Detail of map and campsite post 167)

Many maps show Hopkins Rd incorrectly, it is in fact a dead end dirt road and does not cross the river and join up with the Vauhan Drummond Rd at the southern end.

IF YOU ARE FROM VICTORIA, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE THIS WEEKEND!



We've noticed there are quite a few ADVers in Central Victoria and we'd like to meet you.

Tinnman and I have had our heads together, we think it's time for a Central Victorian ADV Gathering, what do you folk think? We love this area and think that you lot will too - heaps of bush, pretty countryside, great riding covering a huge range from easy to scary, great camping spots and plenty of culinary delights to be had in some very cute towns.

Next question is where and how, here are some of our ideas:

1. Beer night, maybe at the Railway in Castlemaine.

2. Coffee and cake morning in Dalesford. Had to add the cake bit, Tinnman was mighty unimpressed with just coffee - he doesn't drink the stuff.

3. Camping weekend at Mt Franklin, near Dalesford and the Chocolate Mill. We'd suggest a warmer time of year for this spot as it's in an old volcano crater and can be rather cool in winter.

4. Central Vic Ride, which can be stand alone or incorporated in with any of the above.

5. A loop ride: Depending on where we all live, each person does a short ride from their locality which would link in with the next, the end result being a big loop with each section being led by the home town girl/boy. Every one would end up back at their own home or town, or the loop could continue endlessly. And we get to showcase the area to out of towners, why we'd need to showcase the area I don't really know, just thought it sounded good or something.

Final question would be when, please post suggestions if anyone is interested.

But he's from the right side of Langi Logan. Husky Girl & I are in the Central Region according to the Bureau of Meteorology - can we come too?

EVERYONE IS WELCOME
We are all central to something, right? Even if it is me in my own world. Which will be why I didn't make it clear in the first post.








Except Triple hoe because he posts really funny things when he's got to stay home and go to bed like a good boy.

Confused

I'm very confused

The bureau doesn't get anything right. Apparently we (Adventcha and I) are in the Central District and Central Victoria (because the signs do say so when you pass that way) is in the Northern district.
Hmmm, I might need coffee and cake..........

I suggest we debate this camping in a district

2 x Sunburarians here. Far enough away from Melbourne to be happy to self apply Central Victorians as a term.

Coffee, cake and or camping all good.

Sounds like fun :)

I'm stuck with only the road bike until the shop releases my KLR from captivity but if it's after that then I'd like to come also.

Geographic center of Victoria

http://www.land.vic.gov.au/land/lcnl...E000FB8F7?open

So the bureau of meteorology are wrong cause they say we are north country, and all the local businesses here in Bendigo are right because every thing is "Central Vic..........", "Central Vic Plumbing", "Central Vic Dry cleaners".

Surprised me.


Geoff3DMN don't worry you'll have your KLR in time, by the time we pull our fingers out and organise something.

Re CV Ride/Meet up

Hi Miss J.,sounds like a great idea,it would be great to be able to put faces to some of the inmates.
Would it be a good idea for those of us in the near vicinity of C'maine to have a get together and do a bit of planning? Maybe this wet W/E sometime if it suits?
I was thinking just the other day that a tour that took in Mt Franklin, Mt Alex. and Mt Tarrengower {The Golden Triangle} using as much dirt as possible would be a pretty good ride, approx 100 +k, lots of opportunity for a huge variety of terrain. Let me know what you think. Cheers T.

Great idea
Sounds like the beginning of a plan.
