Besides riding on the road, there is an off road path between Warragul and Drouin called the Two Towns Trail. Read about it here. The Mt. Baw Baw Alpine Resort also has several decent MTB trails.

The plan for the longer ride is to always finish around 9:30 to 9:45 so that those participating can enjoy coffee with the 8:00 and 8:15 riders.
