On Ya Bike! 5 – Allan’s Mystery Ride: Wednesday, 31st October, 2018

There were 15 cyclists for the final ride of the On Ya Bike! series of rides for the Seniors’ Festival.  Kelly Rowe led the ride – to a ‘mystery’ destination, on a route devised by our mystery ride man, Allan Marshall.  Kelly led the riders to Limeburners Lagoon, then via the Hovells Creek path to Lara.  Doug Merritt performed the latest verses in his poem “On Ya Bike!” punctuated by the hearty response of “On Ya Bike!” from all.

The feature of the ride was a full circumnavigation of Avalon Airport before coffee back in Lara at Xpresso.  The service was friendly and prompt as usual before the cyclists set off back along Hovells Creek to Rippleside.

Thanks to Kelly for leading the ride, Allan and Kelly for devising it and Doug for his poetry interludes.


Karen’s Kruisy Ride: Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Ride report from Karen Anderson, Ride leader.

Starting at 8:30am from Corio Library, six riders rode to Hovell’s Creek Trail via School Road on to Lara.  The ride continued  The Centreway, Expresso Cafe for coffee.  Ride back along the Hovell’s Creek Trail, around the beach to School Road, Plantation Road returning to the Library.  Ride was approximately 32 km in total.  Very Kruisy indeed.

Editor’s note:  Karen plans to run this ride again in a few weeks.  It’s an ideal, very easy circuit for those who are used to the Saturday river circuit, and would like to try a Sunday ride.
