2 riders rode the short ride from Myrtleford to Lake Buffalo and back with a 7.30am start to avoid the forecast of a warm day. A distance of 40km
19 riders rode the climb up Mt Buffalo with 6 riding from Porepunkah and the remaining 13 (Bakers Dozen) rode from the Caravan Park in Bright. Both rides had a 7.30 am start to beat the heat. All climbers completed the climb up Mt Buffalo and were together at the top before starting back down. One other rider also climbed the Mount later in the morning after arriving late. Riders were down off the mount before the temperature got very hot. It was very pleasant up the top but it soon began to warm up on the way down. Both the Mt Buffalo and the Lake Buffalo rides had been completed before 12.00 noon. Ride distance was 69km from Bright and 56 km from Porepunkah.
