Victorian Seniors Festival 2021
Every Wednesday in October Cycling Geelong presents On Ya Bike! – a series of bike rides.
All cyclists are welcome – you don’t need to be a senior. Rides are free but there is always a stop at a cafe or coffee shop, so please bring some money if you’re looking to buy refreshments.
The series begins with Rod’s History Around the Barwon River ride – an easy 20km circult, all on sealed bike paths) and culminates in a 60km Mystery Ride mainly on sealed roads.
We will be following Covid safe guidelines for ride size, mask-wearing, distancing etc. We also expect all participants to follow current road rules, ride a roadworthy bike, and wear a bike helmet.
There is no need to pre-book. Please direct any queries to Helen (On Ya Bike! coordinator).
