Barwon River Circuit: Saturday August 13th, 2016

Stephanie and Geoff marked their return to winter in Geelong by leading today’s river circuit.  There were at least 24 cyclists, with a couple meeting the ride along the way.  Activity was very busy around the rowing precinct with many individual rowers launching their sculls.

Chatter included the Andrew’s trip – high prices and lack of service in the UK, and the world MTB championships in Czech Republic.  There was also a big interest in last night’s ABC show “Tony Robinson’s Time Walk” which featured Geelong with a starring role to a club member and his wife.  http://iview.abc.net.au/programs/tony-robinsons-time-walks/ZW0649A009S00

The link will only work for a fortnight of so from today!

At Queens Park the river was awash with hundreds of single sculls – some sort of major event.  They were just about to set off as our group stopped at the bridge for a breather.

Thanks to Steph and Geoff for leading the ride and to all riders who make this such a successful event.
