Full Moon Ride to Curlewis: Saturday, 17th September, 2016

Thanks to ride leader Tina for this report.


Karen Anderson, George Belcher, Kevin Clingan, Tina Gordon, Rex Lee, Helen Lyth, Doug Merritt and Robert Turnour

We met and departed from Bellarine Rail Trail corner of Carr Street and Breakwater Road 5pm. Robert needed to repair a puncture 5 minutes into the ride Doug stayed with him and accompanied him to our destination they arrived just 5 minutes after us. Doug set a mean pace to catch up. The weather was favourable even though rain was forecast. We arrived at Curlewis Golf Course Restaurant in daylight. Ingrid Merritt and Lit Belcher wives of riders also friends of Tina Kay, Sharon Eileen and Jenny joined us at the restaurant.  It was a bonus to have non riders join us combining our love of riding and our family and friends enjoying a night with us.  We enjoyed a pleasant meal which was reasonably priced.

We were well lit up on our return trip. Kevin had four lights on his handle bars.  Some had lights that were as bright as car headlights. We chatted as we cycled. Rear white end of bunnies scattering along the path, crickets chirping and frogs croaking. Quite different cycling in the dark with our lights illuminating native vegetation and eucalypt woodland left and right and overhanging the trail.

Looking forward to the next Full Moon Ride.
