Lara via Limeburner’s Lagoon or Lovely Lumps

Lara – Lovely Lumps

Report from Helen.

8:00am -Eleven cyclists start the Lovely Lumps to Lara ride from Rippleside – Kelly, Ric, Allan, George, Russ, Neville, David J and son-in-law Neil, David F, Mike C and Helen (ride leader).  The lumps to Lara (up to the Ted Wilson trail via Church Street and a significant dip and lump on Bluestone Bridge Road under the bluestone rail bridge) were lovely indeed, especially the sweeping downhill towards the Ring Road.

9:30am – assisted by a south wind, the Lovely Lumps eleven arrived at Millars for refreshments.

9:50am – Lagoon to Lara arrived at Millars.  Most of the Lovely Lumps riders were ready to cede their table to the coast-huggers and left via Hovells Creek on the return.  Helen defected and stayed to ride back with Stella’s group.

As this slower group returned, the first yachts racing from Melbourne for the Festival of Sails were streaming into Corio Bay.

8:30am – Lagoon group leave Rippleside Park.

Here’s Stella’s report:

Eight riders  lined up for the easy ride this am! Weather mild and pleasant

The ride was mostly on cycling tracks to Lara taking in the beautiful lagoon with many black swans  nestling on the water.  The light was very beautiful and gentle as we rode past and took in the view

Unfortunately we were a bit late to share coffee with the first group at the  excellent new cafe MILLARS.  But a welcome break was enjoyed by all !

Overall great exercise this morning and pleasant company.

Thanks to Stella and Helen, ride leaders, and to all participants.
