EXPLORING WHITE NIGHT GEELONG: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH
Doug Merritt led a ride from North Geelong Railway Station Taxi / Bus Shelter on Melbourne Road side of the Railway Line with cyclists on light decorated bikes to this wonderful evening of light, fun and music.
Twenty of our club members and friends volunteered to support Around the Bay in a Day on October 7th. Thanks to all of these, and especially to Robert Turnour, who coordinates the Bellarine section of this event on behalf of Cycling Geelong and Bicycle Network. This year we supplied volunteers from North Geelong through to Queenscliff, on the Geelong start 130km, traditional 210, Challenge 250km and Super-challenge 300km routes. As well as providing marshals and rest area volunteers, our volunteers drove two support vehicles – the team leader’s van, driven by Robert assisted by David Fisher, and a sag wagon and trailer driven by Dirk van der Burg and Sandra McCran.
Congratulations to all participants on this year’s ATB, and to all our trusty volunteers.
It appears to have been the best riding day for the event for quite a few years – a kind temperature (maximum 23C), light winds and mainly sunshine.
Well done everyone.
HUMANS IN GEELONG EXPO 2018
For the second year in a row, Cycling Geelong was one of the participants in this year’s expo, held, like Around the Bay, on Sunday October 7th. David Salamy and Helen Lyth looked after our table this year (despite Helen’s glitch with Daylight Saving). There was a huge presence throughout the day, and we actually ran out of local bike maps this year.
It was good to hear so many people wanting to get out on their bikes. We were visited throughout the day by quite a few Cycling Geelong members, including Maree and Bill, Stella and Laura, who had been marshaling earlier for ATB. We met many people, including a few aspiring contenders for the Victorian parliament, and also some councilors from City of Greater Geelong.
Thanks to David and Helen, and to all those who took the time to visit our stand.
SOCIAL EVENTS AND CLUB MEETINGS
Cycling Geelong holds bi-monthly dinner meetings, and occasional other functions. The Annual General Meeting is held in July each year.
The next dinner will be on Tuesday, November 20th, at the Fyansford Hotel – dinner from 6pm.
Dinner bookings to Stephanie.
Thanks to Stephanie and Geoff who continue to do a sterling job of organising our club social evenings.
