Record crowds at Saturday Morning Barwon River Ride

25 cyclists met to participate in Cycling Geelong’s weekly Saturday morning River Ride meeting at Balliang Sanctuary.  A great turnout and once again a great ride with the sun poking through the sky mid morning.  As one member who doesn’t attend that Saturday rides that often I was reminded of the great conversation, camaraderie and coffee had by these Saturday morning rides.  It’s a very easy ride only 20km and not too fast and coffee at The Edge afterwards is a great time to catch up with everyone.  I’m not biased but it’s a great club to be involved in.  Come along for our Saturday ride sometime.  Happy cycling everyone. IMG_2809 IMG_2817 IMG_2818 IMG_2820 IMG_2823 IMG_2824 IMG_2825 IMG_2826 IMG_2828

“Allan’s Goldfield’s Ride Weekend”

A great weekend had by all at Allan’s Goldfield’s Ride Weekend.

Four cars and a trailer departed on Friday 2nd of October from Allan’s house at approximately 2pm heading for Laneecorie Lakeside Park. Arriving at our destination at approximately 4:30pm we all settled into the very adequate accommodation that Allan kindly organised and set off for Newbridge Hotel for a spot of dinner.  Saturday Allan led us on a tour of Tarnagulla, admiring the churches, court house, police stables and other historical views before returning to the Laneecorie Lakeside Park for a barbecue.  The trailer was then packed up on Sunday with bikes in tow and we commuted to Maldon for a ride to Castlemaine.  Some of the attractions were the lookout with stunning views, the Information Centre and a tad of cycling around Castlemaine.  Allan’s knowledge of the towns was invaluable, Allan’s had put in alot of planning and work to make this weekend a success.

Karen’s Kruisy Ride 2.0 Sunday 20th September

Five cyclists left from Corio Library on Sunday bound for Lara for coffee.  Helen, Kelly, Ric, Rosemary and Karen.  Great to see Rosemary.  After a foggy start the sun emerged making for a very comfortable ride.  Rosemary was quite obsessed with the sun as it did retreat at times and Karen spotted some spotted pigs much like Dalmations.  Ric and Kelly bantered on a fair bit and Helen was  gracious as always is the case.  Much conversation was had and alot of laughs.  We all arrived at Lara at approximately 9:30am at Espresso Lounge for a coffee outside.  A great ride had by all at a distance of approximately 32km in total.  Karen's Kruisy Ride 2015
