Thanks to Robert for this report and photos.
Five of us set off on a VLine Service to Melbourne on Sunday 10 April, arriving at Southern Cross Station about 12.38pm. By 1.00pm we were on our way heading down Spencer Street to the Yarra where we picked up the trail beside the River heading east to our lunch destination at Abbotsford Convent, Abbotsford.
The Yarra Trail is a lovely ride meandering beside the River with many beautiful, peaceful scenes.
We arrived at the Convent Bakery at Abbotsford Convent about 2.20 and enjoyed a light lunch or snack and a bit of a rest.
Following lunch, we cycled up river to Dwights Falls where we enjoyed the lovely scenery. From there we made our way north to Rushall Station then cycling west past Royal Park Station and onto the Trail beside Moonee Ponds Creek which brought us back into Docklands and to Southern Cross Station.
It was a beautiful Autumn Day to be out cycling with good company.
