Two cyclists set off on this morning’s ride – Helen (leader) and Kevin. Perhaps the predicted rain and strong wind and Father’s Day clash daunted other riders. Wherever you were, you missed a most enjoyable ride.
The ride route was to Soft Cafe in Minerva Road, via a loop from Rippleside – following the waterfront to Geelong Grammar, then across School and Plantation Roads to follow the Ted Wilson Trail to Church Street and coffee.
The coffee shop was very busy (perhaps a few Father’s Day breakfasts were responsible for this). Kevin’s hot chocolate finally arrived. It’s great to see our coffee shops doing such good business on weekends.
With a Father’s Day lunch date, Kevin then rode home (to a three generations lunch at his daughter’s – Kevin is the proud great grandpa to a three week old baby boy).
The return to Rippleside was via the Cement Works Trail to Douro Street, then Margaret Street overpass.
There was no rain (though by 1.30 a thunderstorm brought heavy rain and hail to Rippleside).
