i'm planning over the next few weeks to do a day ride just up to albury and back.
it would be (obviously) a saturday or sunday as i wanna catch up with some friends for a quick hello and blow the cobwebs out of my brain.
if anyone is interested in a relatively boring ride (round yarra glen yea seymour then good old boring hume) let me know.
also any alburyites - wanna meet me for an afternoon cuppa before i head back?

If you want to stay of the Hume for a bit longer continue on to from Yea to Mansfield and over the twisties to Whitfield. Then a short stroll to Wangaratta and about 40mins on the Hume to Aldury/Wodonga. I`m sure you`ll enjoy it! :)

Yep, within an hour and a half from home I can head to Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham or Falls Creek. Lucky me:D

If you have time V.A. after Wangaratta you can go through Myrtleford, turn off at Ovens and go through Happy Valley ( Well named to those who know the road ) and wind your way back on the Kiewa Valley Highway back to Wodonga.

Hooroo
