    Thumbs up Melbourne Cup Day ride - Warby Trail - Tue 6/11/12

    Hi everybody.

    After some chats with the FOA heads of state, we thought we'd organise another exciting installment of the ever popular Cup Day Ride on the Lilydale - Warburton rail trail.

    It's been done before:

    I'm yet to hear of anyone having a bad time on one of these rides, and I personally think it's a seriously good way of getting the fuck out of Melbourne and escaping all the orange women and suited up bogan douchebags already pissed at 8am on their way to the races. Please note however, there will plenty of lolz to be had when we gather at Fed Square in preparation of the train ride to Lilydale.

    It's a super easy 40km each way, with lunch at the awesome Warburton bakery, before the ride back to Lilydale for delicious hot chips (chiiiiiiiiiiiiips) and a few cleansing beverages for the train ride back to Melbourne. Please note, there will also be many lolz to be had upon exiting Flinders Street station and observing all of the same pissed dickheads that have been getting blind all day at Flemington.

    Here are some pics from last years ride (I've literally had these on my camera since that ride, glad I finally had the impetus to upload them to my laptop).

    Enjoy, more details to follow nearer the time (like train timetables etc).

    the party carriage


    SEE!! so much party good times!!


    the only hill for the entire 80km, dunevenworryaboutit


    and at the top of the hill is cog cafe (and some small troll like character, seen here next to gene)


    look how fast we were going


    james, perhaps upset with his choice at the warby bakery?


    refuelling....... like a bossssss


    siiiiiiiiiime being some kind of evil deviant


    oh the laughs we had


    chaz, well i dunno what chaz is doin here. tate clearly having a good time



    so yeah, put it in the diary and tell your other halves that you're unavailable to drink champagne and get blind with their mates, coz you'll be having rad bike times with your FOA brethren and sistren.
