Ride Calendar

COVID-19 UPDATE   17 Feb 2021

PLEASE NOTE THAT CYCLING GEELONG RIDES ARE BACK ON AGAIN FROM THURSDAY 18th Feb.

FACE MASKS – Cyclists are permitted to ride without a face mask.  However, if you are riding, please have a face covering available and use it if you are stopped in public areas.

Club dinners and other social gatherings are also suspended till further notice.

Our regular cafes, Barwon Edge and Cafe Zoo are both still open.  Please follow the guidance of cafe staff for seating limits etc.

When riding with others, Cycling Australia recommends that common sense prevails.

  • Ride as least 1.5m apart
  • When stopped maintain distance from others
  • If stopping for refreshments keep equipment etc. off tables etc.

We’ll keep you updated as new information comes to hand.

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.)
