Herman led 32 cyclists on the Barwon River path. It was a perfect morning for cycling – cool, still and with a general feel of relaxed recreation among path users. Due to the holiday weekend for Easter, the Barwon Edge had a surcharge of 15%, which was a problem for a few of the group. However, the relaxed mood continued with lots of chatter and discussion before the riders dispersed to go home their own way.
Thanks to Herman for leading this morning’s ride.
Next week – Doug has organised to have a PASS BOX fitted to his bike and a couple of people will be at Barwon Edge to fit this after the river ride next Saturday. PASS BOX is a measuring device to measure how close other vehicles come as they pass bicycles. The aim of this is survey is to see just how much of an issue this is, and to see how motorist behaviour changes over time. The Melbourne Bicycle Users Group are seeking other Geelong cyclists who ride on the roads around Geelong. If you’re interested, please fill out the registration survey at http://passbox.org/.
