This club ride clashed with The Ballarat Cycling Classic. Consequently, there were only two riders – Helen (leader) and Neville.
It was a perfect day for cycling, though the strong easterly led to a slight alteration in course – taking the Bellarine Rail Trail from Leopold to Curlewis. It was another good opportunity to ride the newly sealed portion of Swan Bay Road to Banks Road. The ride then turned south to Collendina for coffee at the very busy Cheeky Cow Cafe.
The return route was via Thirteenth Beach, Lake Road and Barwon Heads Road with a return to Rippleside via Breakwater and the waterfront.
