Report:      After a crisp morning start x7 riders headed off for a welcome hot drink at the Memorial Park café.   Along the Merri Creek Trail our journey revealed the clean up activities undertaken along various low lying  sections after recent heavy rains and flooding.  Lunch in Clifton Hill and slow departures to differing “home areas”.  Much work is being undertaken across the Capital City Trail with path widening soon to make a huge difference.  Distance – 35 klms.
