Despite the lack of a ride leader, five cyclists arrived at South Barwon Reserve to ride. Barwon Heads was decided as the destination, and John M designated leader – a role he accomplished with aplomb. The others were David J, Russ, Helen and visitor Carla.
John set off at a good pace down Barwon Heads Road, despite a reasonably strong south-westerly wind. The wind assisted the ride to Barwon Heads along Thirteenth Beach. The group arrived before the ‘brunch rush’ at The Heads.
The return was via the same route. John led all the way, allowing the rest to draft against the westerly, and making sure that the above 22kph average was retained.
Thanks to John for leading this most enjoyable ride, and welcome to Carla. We hope you’ll ride with Cycling Geelong often while you’re in Geelong.
