    Well, it was a balmy (or is that barmy???) night on Saturday as the
    temperature was rather mild compared to some recent ones....

    With about 100 or so started the ride left Somerton and headed off to
    Cardinia via Yarra Glen and Packenham. At the first stop, hot soup and
    coffee was greeted not by frozen fingers and toes but by a warm bunch of
    riders....I was wondering if an ice cream machine could have been better

    The next leg went to Drouin, Poowong and along the Strezlecki to the Lang
    Lang servo. I must say that riding this leg was a tad nerve wrecking with a
    spot of rain having been through before us and leaving some damp spots here
    and there not to mention that this is a windy road best ridden during
    daylight hours...well , for me anyway

    The last leg went from Lang Lang to the Frankston Yacht club via Flinders.
    This leg saw the temperature drop considerably with my choice to change
    gloves from lightish winter material types to heavier leather ones a welcome

    All in all it was a good ride with some twisty bits, some long straight bits
    and no rain to talk off except for the odd light sprinkle two three times
    during the whole ride
    The winner of the most riders was the Shearwater Ulysses. A couple of offs,
    one rider from Deniliquin and the oldest was a 65yo and the youngest 16 (who
    got a lift in a sidecar)....
