Brunswick Bike Boy Memorial Full Moon Ride - Wednesday 25th August 
7:05PM St Albans Railway Station.
We lost a good friend in Brunswick Bike Boy (AKA Neil) this year to the 
big C and this was the last ride he organized for us. Help us celebrate 
his memory. 
Catch the 6:34pm Watergardens train from Flinders St platform 4. We will 
be in the last carriage, natch.  Get off at St Albans station or meet us 
there 7:05pm. (There is a licensed supermarket nearby for supplies if 
needed).  Join the Maribyrnong Trail via Main Road East and the Ring Road 
The path is compacted lilydale toppings for the first part, but it is 
suitable for all kinds of bicycle. Distance approx 30kms. Exit by 
consensus, either through New Market to join the Capital City trail or 
along Footscray Rd to Docklands. For a guide to the route check: 
Picnic half way at Canning Reserve or the Lily St Lookout depending on the 
weather so bring some nibbles and beverages of your choice. It always 
seemed to rain on Neil's rides so lets put the mozz on that by bringing 
your wet weather gear in his memory.
