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.)
