Welshy joined us for a run to Newstead for coffee and Glen Lyon for lunch.
With me on my Cali Metal, Jane on her Duke and Welshy on my Breva 1100, we fanged off to Kyneton for some fuel. Jane then set a cracking pace (“the Duke doesn’t like sitting on 100 kays in fifth”) up past the Kyneton aerodrome to Malmsbury then via the old Calder Highway through Harcourt to Maldon and the Dig Cafe at Newstead.
After a coffee, we tracked via Yandoit to Glenlyon. We could feel the temperature drop as we climbed the slopes of Mt Franklin, the extinct volcano. The Glenlyon general store has recently been upgraded to a restaurant with an outdoor entertainment area. Nice food and a reasonable price.
Home through Lauriston for a Coopers or three!
