  3. Staying in Portarlington 16/5 – 24/5/15. Trying to contact the Port Pedallers for a ride in the area. We are touring cyclists 25 – 27kph, any distance. Would like to join with fellow cyclists. Thanks in anticipation.

  4. Jim Day remembrance day.
    Sorry I am unable to join the ride today Sunday 15 November 2015.
    Jim was the person who introduced me to the club many years ago. He also came to my assistance when I was exhausted and dehydrated while on a club ride. I have fond memories of Jim. It is heartening to recognise him annually.

  5. Just a warning riding this afternoon bellarine rain train near wilsons rd altercation with 3 youths of bike on the ground kicked to head and face, gold necklace stolen, thanks to passers by who came to help and chased them off. Im 68 they were 16-17. I thought moving to Geelong from Tas was a good move not any more.

    • Kim
      Have you reported this to the police? I hope so. I’ll pass it on to our club members and circulate to the wider cycling community. I hope you’re not too injured, though I’m sure you’re very shaken up by this.

    • That’s really terrible Kim. Last time I rode through there, a woman who was walking asked if I could walk with her to the next street as she’d been hassled and wanted to get off the trail.

      I hope you are mending well and not too sore for too long.

    • Hi Margaret. It’s a slow social ride – probably around 16kph – be as slow as the slowest rider, with at least three stops to regroup along the way. Coffee and chat is also a part of this laid back event. We’d love to see you if this is the sort of riding you’d like to do.
