Seven riders started out from Balyang Car Park – Barbara and Dirk, Dianne and Paul, Alex, Mike C and Helen (ride leader). Unfortunately, Dianne had a gear issue and had to leave the ride near Balyang.
Conditions were overcast, with a light westerly wind. The route avoided busy roads.
The ride to Moriac included climbs on Barrabool Road, Ted Wilson Trail near Deakin, Waurn Ponds Drive and Reservoir Road, before the long descent in Hendy Main Road to Moriac. Refreshments were well-earned and very welcome.
The ride back to Geelong was less hilly, completing the circuit back to Balyang via Freshwater Creek, Waurn Ponds and Bailey Street to the Breakwater and the Barwon path. Thanks to all riders for coming along.
If you’re not riding the Ballarat BAD ride next Sunday, check out the Cycling Geelong Ride Calendar later in the week for a shortish ride on Sunday 7th. In the meantime, keep those pedals turning.
