    Remember that old joke about the only thing left after the nuclear winter being cockroaches riding DR’s?
    So in honour of the happiness and light being spread across the globe thanks to Kim and Donald we may need a practise run.
    Place
    The Blackwood Pub 90 k’s from Melbourne on the Lerderderg River.
    Accommodation
    One room at the pub with two double beds and a bunk.
    Camping at the Blackwood Springs Caravan Park, 10 minutes walk from the Pub.
    The special school has a 5 bedroom house with 25 bunks at $10 a head.
    (Need some idea of numbers for this one if at all possible)
    There are also a bunch of B&B's around Blackwood if that's your to your liking

    There are lots of tracks in and around the Wombat Forest for those that want to meander their way there on the dirt as well some very picturesque blacktop. The choice is yours.

    Of course others makes and models of bikes are welcome but know that you are all doomed.

    I'll wind up some of the local Cockroaches to attend and hopefully give some local knowledge on the Lederderg/Wombat Tracks. We'll bring some Pumpkin Bikes along too so you Apocalypse Dudes can have a laugh as you tow us broken down and out of the Wombat bog(s)......

    :hmmmmmI think that we may be amongst that cockroaches on DR's description.

    Would it be suitable for the Bitumen & Bakeries (B & B) crew who are the more civilized of the DR riders. :D

    I'm unlikely to make it. Got to be uin Murrayville the following weekend for the DSMRA AGM, then Emmaville the weekend after that for the TK Ride and I don't have sufficient brownie points for 3 weeks on the road.

    But I did go and check out the venue and some of the riding on Sat in the ute, should be a ripper :thumb

    I stayed at the pub with my TDM for one of those--hadn't bought the Yellow Pig yet.
    Now there's no pub...

    By the grace of Allah, we should be back in Oz by then with the bikes that have done a bit of a ride in South America.
