Report:    An interesting start to this ride at the exit from the city with many detours from the path due to freeway works/ path upgrades – would be more enjoyable if all were clearly marked.  Once back on the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail proper it was a pleasant ride following this meandering creek out to West Meadows.  Return to Jacana area where riders took there own routes home.  Distance Nth Melbourne to West Meadows – 25 klms.  This was a new area for some of the riders.
