There are probably 5 ways to find a ride:
1) ask at your local bike shop if they have a ride or if they know of one.
2) look at http://www.bunchridefinder.com.au/ for a ride that sounds suitable
3) look at the Bicycle Vic website, lots of rides are listed there e.g. https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/forum ... =16&t=3319
4) join a cycle club, they have regular training rides,
5) start your own group, decide when & where you want to ride and advertise for interested people.
I ride at 7am every Sunday starting in Narre Warren South or Lynbrook and ride to Mordialloc, Frankston, Tooradin or Emerald you are welcome to join me and my friend. Is 2 riders a bunch?

You don't drive to Beach Rd from Balwyn - you ride there. Balwyn to Mordiallocvia Kerford Rd and back is about 80kms.

There's always Yarra Blvd, Studley park Kew area, Eastern freeway bike path for a short local rides.
Else +1 cyclotaur.
You could always check out cycling profiles for some suggestions.
I try to pick one of these every now and then for some variety. I'm quietly trying to get through the whole list, its kind of a small bucket-list goal of mine.
Its my experience, most of these rides on weekends have enough cyclists grouping together creating bunches for you. introduce yourself and jump in.

+1 for this ride. I recommend joining the first group that leaves Ave Athol, Canterbury at 5.50am. Back by 7.30am at Maling Room for Coffee, although I generally skip the coffee and join the good conversation around the table.
The MRR will link you with many other rides that could take you all around Melbourne.
