Barwon River Circuit – Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Thanks to Paul Cooney for this ride report and photo.

There was much congestion in the area near the Moorabool Street Bridge due to the rowing. This was the most crowded I have seen this area and rowing officials had manned access points on the track, presumably to restrict traffic. One of the people manning these suggested to us that we shouldn’t be there. By proceeding slowly, I consider we were no problem to the rowers nor contributed much to the general congestion. As it is hard to predict how busy this area will be during rowing season I suggest we continue to ride as normal on the Saturday ride.

There were 17 cyclists.

Paul Cooney.

Editor’s note – We’ve had issues before with over-officious marshals during rowing season.  The path is public, and, as long as users proceed with caution and courtesy as usual, there is every right for members of the public, including cyclists, to use it.  The School Girls Rowing Head of the River will be without spectators this year.
