FROM Helen Lyth, President 2018-2019
Welcome to Cycling Geelong. We welcome cyclists and all interested in cycling, cycle advocacy, especially in the Geelong region.
I am proud to be President for the 2018-19 year. I have been a member of the club since its birth in 1999. I am also the club’s current webmaster, and one of our representatives to Cycling Without Age, and the coordinator of On Ya Bike! – a series of bike rides during October for the Seniors’ Festival.
Cycling Geelong appeals to a wide range of people, of all ages and cycling abilities. Cycling Geelong is a non-competitive club. Our members value opportunities to enjoy cycling as a recreational and social activity, as well as supporting others to cycle through advocacy and volunteering.
The club runs regular weekly rides. Currently these include the ever-popular Barwon River circuit on Saturday mornings, Sunday rides of varying difficulties and destinations, and a weekly Thursday ride to Drysdale via the beautiful Bellarine Rail Trail. See our ride calendar for details. There are also occasional club weekends away cycling in other parts of the state.
Social activities include dinner meetings with guest speakers or workshops every two months, a Christmas function and a summer informal gathering.
Whether you’ve just taken up cycling or been cycling for over 50 years, join us anytime on any type of bicycle. You are most welcome.
We welcome new members and visitors. Please enjoy our club website and keep those pedals turning and Safe Riding. To become a member, please fill out the Membership Form on our website. You will then be contacted by Tina, our Membership Secretary.
