We had 3 riders, Dave S, Lynton and Colleen, at the designated start point at Rippleside. It looked like a great day for riding, with no wind at the start and predicted North wind later, which would help us get home.
We met Coralie on the road at Corio Quay where we saw that some gigantic wind turbine blades were being unloaded.
After a quick pitstop at Coralie’s house to add some pressure to the rear tyre on her Bike Friday we continued around the Esplanade and then the Bay and Hovell’s Creek trails to stop for coffee at Espresso Blu, Lara.
On the way back Coralie offered to show us the roads around the Hovell Park area which were new to me and we then retraced our route back to Rippleside, taking advantage of the tail wind.
A very enjoyable ride.
