We’re off to the beach!!!!
Melb WNBR, We’re on the road to Port Melbourne & we think you’ll love the new location.
… Starting at ‘the Local’ pub (22 Bay st) and then off to a secret preparation area.
Around 3pm we will go for a local ride and take in the beach-front and sights, from there we will return to the city end of PortMelb to prepare for the huge lap of the area, at 4pm, including Bay St again to the beach and Station Pier.
Final map still being setup and we’ll announce here when ready.

Remember Bay street is closed to cars ALL day, Use Pickles st.
Plenty of all-day car parking nearby. Suggest Graham st to the East of Bay st.
Hoping for many, many riders, will you be one?
Due the large amount of ‘non’riders’ arriving at the start, we will only post a meeting point where we will need to move off to proper paintup and get ready area.
