There's 3 times as much local Melbourne chat here: http://www.cyclingforums.com/f126-au...w-zealand.html
, and 50
times more local chat here: http://www.bv.com.au/forums/
I think there's now a waiting period to register on the Bike Vic forum, coz too many peanuts were getting on there and trolling.
Check out the "plan a ride" sub-forum. Apart from that, there are a bazillion groups on Beach Rd on Sat and Sun mornings, and I'm sure it would take you literally only minutes to find a group would be happy to have you join in
Also, chat to the shops in your area that sell fancy stuff -- they'll know what's going on. Omara Cycles and the Mentone Bicycle Superstore will know about it, and they also have there own groups, but they might be 'exclusive'.
There are also 3 shops almost right next to each other on Beach Rd, Black Rock
Having said all that.....GENERALLY
, the strongest and fastest guys I see around here do most of their training alone
