    I'm keen. My exhaust (like the rest of my car, actually) is absolutely knackered, so apologies in advance for the awful noise! haha

    Cheers,

    That's great you're coming along Stu! My exhaust isn't exactly subtle

    So i figure we meet at the main car park, at the top of the gardens

    count me in. there is a nice road that goes down through hepburn to franklinford/Yandoit area. from there you have newstead, maldon etc, mt tarrengower hill climb area! even heading back east from there you have the back of harcourt sutton grange, mount alexander area. vaughan springs could be easily put in the mix. where were you thinking? i was born and grew up in daylesford so know the area pretty well.

    That's great you can come along. I know that road out of Hepburn you're talking about. I would definitely like to take in Maldon and Vaughan Springs. So yeah that sounds like a good route you've mentioned. Maybe you can lead the pack. Looks like there is going to be a good turn out, should be a fun drive!

    i could show you a few twisty hilly roads in and around daylesford then someone else can take over, we could just make it up as we go? just as an idea, could start at gardens then go down over lake daylesford and out the old ballarat rd take a right which leads you back through town and then out towards dry diggins take a left and down past jacksons lookout through hepburn and onto franklin ford. all nice and steep twisty roads, very bumpy roads though. it smooths out towards franklinford.

    from there we could shoot accross to guildford and vaughan springs then from there accross to maldon through newstead? dont want to hi jack your run. im happy to just come along and enjoy the drive. ill be in daylesford and heading back to bendigo sunday anyway so works out good for me.

    Yep, sounds good. Going to give Vaughan Springs a miss. We can wing it for a bit if need be. Start off like you said. I know all those roads around Daylesford. We'll grab a coffee, and have a bit of an intro at that cafe in the gardens to discuss it before we head off.
