We had 8 riders at the start point at Sth Barwon reserve. As it was a strong Northerly wind I initially thought about doing the ride in the reverse direction, to get a tail wind on the Highton Pipeline path, but Lynton had to get back early so we set off in the planned direction, heading to Waurn Ponds first. It was a good day for riding, no rain. When we got to Deakin I led the group around the gravel loop and we stopped for a picture by the lake on the western boundary of the campus (picture kindly taken by Tim who was out walking his dog).
We then continued on for a quick tour through the middle of the campus, with ‘tour guides’ Lynton and David S who told us about the roles of the various buildings.
Heading off after a short ‘pitstop’ we made our way into the headwind along Pigdons Rd and then along the Highton Pipeline bike path, then down Roslyn Rd to a coffee stop at Two Sugars where we found a nice table in the sun. After coffee we rode along the river path, stopping to watch a Dragon Boat race, back to Sth Barwon Reserve. A great ride, thanks everyone.
