Default How's the serenity? So much serenity...

To paraphrase the great man… We went to Bonnie Doon. We went to Bonnie Doon. We went to Boonie Doon….

Report to follow.

On omen perhaps?



Up through the Dandenongs and further dirt on the run to Warbuton.







The Acheron Way and then skirting Marysville.

A brief delay while I fixed an electrical gremlin. Electrical issues on a British bike, who would ever have thought…

Down the hill to Marysville and onto the Cathedral Range for lunch.





Off Cathedral Range.



Garry was very popular with this local…



A cut through on Grannys Lane to Molesworth.



Fuzzy took the lead and raced into the Strathbogies.









We all got caught out on the same sneaky left hand corner…





Into Ruffy where it was determined we still had 60km to go and I only had 35km fuel range left…



I dropped off the ride and headed to Yarck in search of fuel. Note to self – fuel is no longer available in Yarck…

I made it to Merton without pushing so I was able to get us set up at the caravan park and was just returning with a carton of beer when the others arrived in Bonnie Doon.



It was soon time for the walk into town for the Bonnie Bar.

True to their claims they have both beer including a pale ale just launched from the new brewery in Mansfield (check out Social Bandit Brewery on FB)….



…and pizza. Pizza was great although Garry did struggle with the sheep’s turd on the vegetarian selection.



Over dinner Fuzzy was increasingly concerned about a monster storm that his phone app kept warning was heading our way.

Now I’m not sure if it was the beer, the flip flops or Fuzzy’s hurrying us up but for some jumping barbed wire fences was more a challenge than for others…



Give Fuzzy due kudos. The storm hit about 3 minutes are we arrived back at camp. It sure was a good un lasting most of the night.

It was surprising how little water is Lake Eildon.



It’s been a while since this one has seen active duty.



Into Mansfield for breakfast where Fuzzy experience bladder leakage issues resulting in lots of apologies and a mop and bucket…

The plan to loop Mt Sterling was abandoned due to weather. Option two – Mt Buller. Abandoned halfway up when we rode into the clouds.



Garry had introduced us to his little friend over breakfast. This seemed like a good place to drop him off.







Back down the hill. Fuzzy made a dash for home and the remainder made for a loop towards Jamieson.





It quickly turned very slippery. Time for option 4…



Largely bitumen to the Eildon Jamieson Rd.



We dodged storm littler and made a dash for Warbuton via the Acheron Way.



Final coffee in Warburton.

Trip distance: 638km for me
