Jim Day was an early member of Cycling Geelong. He was active as Ride Coordinator and on the committee. Jim was passionate about cycling and supporting cyclists. Each year, to support cyclists attending The Great Victorian Bike Ride, Jim ran two Cycling Geelong bike rides – Around Lake Connewarre and The Bellarine 100. This ride had two options, a shorter ride on the Bellarine Rail Trail to Point Lonsdale, and the longer circuit of the Bellarine, via Drysdale, Portarlington, Queenscliff, Point Lonsdale, Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads.
The Jim Day Ride is held each year at around this time (also near Jim’s birthday). This year all eight riders chose the shorter option ride (which, since Jim’s death is along the Rail Trail to Drysdale). John Miro led Karen, Helen, Sandra, David J, Kelly, Neville and Russell on a leisurely ride.
Thanks to John for leading a most enjoyable ride.
