Ride Calendar

NOTE:  Prospective riders for Cycling Geelong rides (other than the Saturday River circuit) should contact the ride leader the day before the ride.  Ride leader details are in the Members Area of the website.  Non-members who wish to ride should make contact through Dave Simpson, the ride coordinator. (This ensures the ride leader knows how many riders are attending, and can let riders know if there are changes in the ride.)

  2. Helen & Karen I have accepted the 1st of November for the Red Rock ride & I have sent in the information about the ride I will try to give it a plug with Helen on Sat at the Puls

  6. Helen I am thinking about running a Rail trail ride on the 19th of November. I have in mind the Old Beachy starting from Beachforest down to Colac. Then shuttle the bikes to Forest & take the old trail from there to Birregura then home
    .I would like to see how many are interested in this ride I plane to put 35 mil tyres on my flat bar bike for this ride,this means it isn’t fit for Road bikes,we would need a driver for every 4 riders & to tow the trailer. We would have to leave early in the day so as we can have lunch in Gellibrand or Colac. Interested members can ring me on 0418992672 or E/mail me amarshal@ncable.net.au.

  7. I have given the incorrect date as I plan to do the Rail Trail ride on the 20th of November if there is enough members wanting to go & the trails are dry enough then as you know they have had a lot of rain in the Otway Rangers Allan Marshall
