Maree led at least 28 members along with friends and family on the river circuit. The weather was perfect. Bill took the position of tail ender, making sure that no-one was left behind.
Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road People’s Ride
Quite a few members have entered the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Classic People’s ride which is being held next Saturday, so perhaps numbers for the river ride will be down then. Good luck to all riders – whether cycling the short or long course. Entries for the peoples rides have now closed. However, you can still bring children down on Friday 27th, to participate in the free family ride.
There are lots of great viewing points along the race routes to watch the women’s event on Saturday 28th, January, or the men’s event on Sunday 29th January. The start and finish line is near Streampacket Gardens. You’ll see many of the cycling stars from around the world, including Chris Froome, the 2016 winner of the Tour de France, and many of Australia’s great cyclists including Richie Porte, Simon Gerrans, Amanda Spratt, and our local hero Leigh Howard.
Thanks to Maree and Bill for leading and supporting this week’s river ride.
