Moving to Melbourne

Hi, I'm moving to Melbourne in the new year - change of job, shame to leave Sydney but it's a great opportunity.

Anybody got info on the area, trails to do, websites or forums to check out, clubs to join, good bike shops to visit etc......

Thanks in anticipation.

Melbourne hire

Does anyone know anywhere specific in Melbourne where I can hire a decent rig to try out a few of the tracks mentioned in this thread:

Also any tracks worthwhile within reasonable driving distance of the CBD?

Just got back from a couple of weeks in Melbourne. I took my bike down because I was driving and had plently of room and thought I would try out a few of the local trails. Riders in Melbourne are pretty lucky with so much legal single track close by in State / Regional Parks. Here are some of the trails I rode:

Lysterfield Park - about 40 minutes South East of the CBD. This consists of around 20kms of extremely well maintained singletrack that was well signposted. There is even a Trailmix bike store located there with bike hire, information, coffee, maps and clinics.
