    We meet at Sandy’s paddock at 20 Foos Lane, Canadian. This is a very quiet dirt road with float parking on a nearby private property in Foos Rd, and there is safe parking along the road side if necessary.


    Our ride host Sandi Chiswell will lead us on a leisurely ride of a total distance of 15 kilometres (return trip), over easy terrain in a bush setting. We will be riding to the University Café at Mt Helen where there is a large grassed area, trees to tie-up and toilet facilities. Remember the pace will be determined by discussion but there will be opportunities to trot/canter if the group wishes. We should be back at floats by 2.00.
