Cycling Geelong Christmas Party

Around 40 members and friends attended last night’s Christmas function at the Belmont Hotel.  There was lots of chatter and laughter, a little music supplied by Tina, Joy and the band of trusty ukulele players, and, as Santa was off riding his sleigh somewhere, the Good Christmas Fairy (AKA Heather) took on the role of gift giving for Kris Kringle.

It was wonderful to see a wide range of members, both new and older.  Thanks to Stephanie for her sterling work in organising social functions throughout the year.

If any members have photos of last night’s event, please send them to Helen so they can be added to this report.

In the interim, apologies for the quality of these mobile phone shots taken in poor light.

Jingle Bells (Cycling version)

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Cyclists on the roam

Oh what fun it is to ride when it’s downhill coming home.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Cyclists on the track

Oh what fun it is to ride with a tail wind coming back.


John is out the front, with David on his wheel,

Not far back is Kellie Rowe with Margy Mac at heel.

Allan’s next to Rod, who’ll tell us all a tale

Of just how far we’ve come since bikes were first made and for sale.


Tina’s puffing hard, ‘I need a coffee break!’

Dirk and Barbara stop their bikes for latte, chat and cake,

Magpies on the swoop, Paul’s helmet’s all a-spike

Shane’s spinning past on tiny wheels – now that’s a snazzy bike.  OH!


George’s eyes a-shine, he dreams of rides outback

Bush flies, punctures, mud and dust then sleeping on the track.

Geoff and Stephy save to cycle overseas

While puffing hard up Highton’s hills is hard upon their knees.
