Geelong Circuit Ride – Sunday 22 May, 2022

Thanks to Robert Turnour, Ride leader for this report and photos.

Following lunch for a few of us, at the Botanical Gardens Tea House, we met up with the remainder of the group of 10 riders to head off on our Geelong Circuit Ride at 1.15pm. The weather had stabilised and warmed a little on what could have been a fairly cool day.

From the meeting point, at the north side of the Botanical Gardens, we made our way to Malop Street to cycle the east / west bike route to Gheringhap Street. It was great to be able to use this designated bike route; a first time for some in our group of riders.

Gheringhap Street led us onto Western Beach Road as we made our way around to and through Rippleside Park. We then made our way around to the Margaret Street overpass and some back Streets to then pick up the Tom McKean Trail from Douro Street. The Trail eventually got us down onto the River Trail at Fyansford.

Following a coffee break, at the lovely venue of Queens Cafe/Bar at Queens Park, we followed the River around to Moorabool Street where we made our way back to Malop Street on the newly constructed bicycle route. We returned to the Botanical Gardens via Malop Street having enjoyed an adventurous circuit route of Geelong with a group of friendly people.

The Ride was rated easy and had a length of 25ks.

It turned out to be an enjoyable afternoon. I am hoping to do another one fairly soon.

Robert Turnour, Ride Leader.
