Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them! Midweek regular Stoimen Stojanov is leading a winter-friendly western ride that includes Brisbane Ranges.

The Hard Rock Ride: granite, basalt and sedimentary. Mt.Buninyong.

Travel back in time to 505 million years ago as we go past the Granite peaks of the You Yangs and Anakies. Then to a more modern 0.5-4.0 million years, as the seabed faulted, uplifted and created the Brisbane Ranges. Admire the views atop a volcano 300m’s above the surrounding landscape, this is Mt Buninyong (719m), active 100-150,000 years ago and as recently as 12,000 years ago.

Keep a look out for Bunjil, the Creator Spirit of the Wathaurong people, represented by the eagle.

The ride is a short 200km, but concentration needs to be kept up with some unexpected blind, sharp 40km/h bends, single track bridge crossings, wildlife, farmers and gravel strewn, patchwork roads that are honoured being called roads……all sealed…..mostly…….

Ride meeting spot is Caltex at the intersection of Maltby Bypass & Prince’s Freeway

(Melbourne bound side at the C109 Werribee turn off)

Arrive 09:30 for your fuel(s). Depart 10:00.
