Northern Bike Paths – Sunday 21st July, 2019

Kelly led five riders (Kelly, Karen, Helen, Richard and Dave S) on a most enjoyable circuit from Federal Mills in North Geelong, to North Shore, Bell Park to the Ted Wilson Trail.  Shared paths were available for almost all of this section, though, with debris on the path tunnel under Thompson Road, a road detour was made.

The ride continued to Ballarat Road and along a newly resealed path to Ballan Road, where lack of infrastructure makes the turn into Creamery Road difficult.  From Creamery Road, the cyclists turned downhill along Bluestone Bridge Road and under the railway line to return to the Ted Wilson Trail, which was followed north to its end at Broderick Road.  The return journey was around the waterfront paths.

Coffee was at Pickers Union and the Federal Mills.

Thanks to Kelly, ride leader for this interesting ride.
