Default RDO Monday

It's been a whole month since the last Roster Day, and the weather was nice enough for a tootle in the back blocks, so off I went.
Heading north through Whittlesea and stopping at the Toorourrong Reservoir on the way up to Flowerdale.

This is at the base of Mt Dissapointment and I was hoping to find a track to take me to the top, but alas it's all walking tracks from what I could see.





There wasn't much to see in there really, I took a side road only to find a locked gate and a high fence.

So it was on to Flowerdale and then Strath Creek and Murchisons gap.

The Pub at Strath creek looks very forlorn and uninviting. Shame really.

The familiar vista at Murchison Gap





It was fun getting back onto the dirt roads.

Even though this section was smooth as, a bit farther on a grader was working and big dump trucks were bringing metal in for the roads.











So there you have it, a short Monday ride into the Mt Disappointment State Forest, on a grey old Melbourne day.

Still beats working though.

First time ever that workers striked when they were asked to make more money.
