Our ride director Steve Masters has ridden and mapped some road rides, that offer the best that the Bass Coast area has to offer, including a challenging (stages) based ride on the Saturday.    

The rail trail between San Remo and Wonthaggi is easily accessed, as it runs past the Oceanview Retreat and another two trails that are located within reasonable driving distance.

 

On behalf of the VetRide team we look forward to welcoming you to ‘Killy’.
