St Kilda East - Double gully - Mine, Hildebrand - St Andrews - Kangaroo Ground - St Kilda East:
I met up with Rick, Cam, and their mate Dean, without any ride specifics planned. After bugger all discussion, we vaguely settled on some modified form of the BG hill route, then set out Northward on the damp morning roads.

The was a corner or two where the damp road made us more cautious, and the clouds that hung about were less threatening rain, and more keeping the temperature stable. To put that all another way, it was a freaking lovely morning to get out into the hills, and make last moment decisions about which roads to take.

Wilson or Broad Gully? Broad Gully.

Christian or Hildebrand? Hildebrand.

Flat Rock or the Nichols/Carters? Nichols/Carters.... no wait, Cam has snapped the cage of his front derailleur... better just do the Antique Store climb.
