North western Geelong loop – Sunday, September 1st, 2019

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).
