Portarlington – combined ride: Sunday10th September, 2017

Combined Ride with Cycling Geelong to Jack Rabbit near Drysdale on Sunday 10.9.17
As we assembled for our ride today at the ‘Park N’ Ride’ carpark near the Botanical Gardens we were drawn in by the beautiful scenery on this sunny Sunday morning. The Crimson Rosellas were in the tree besides us so I snapped a few shots. David Simpson from Cycling Geelong led the group of 13 riders from both clubs out along the Portarlington Rd to the House of Jack Rabbit Cafe just past Drysdale. The views were even better there and we enjoyed coffee out on the patio with Corio Bay stretching in the sunshine almost to the You Yangs. Our return tip was via Portarlington, St Leonards, Swan Bay Rd and the Bellarine Highway. From Cycling Geelong we had David Simpson, Linton, Brigid, Doug and Richard and from GTC Pam, Marie, Lyn G, Ben, Chris Hume, Chris Halpin, Mike T, and John H. We covered approximately 90km on our lap of the Bellarine Peninsula
