Geelong March Ride
Geelong 1st Sunday Ride 4/3/2018.
After a phone call to Doug Aldham on Saturday to enquire on his health, as we haven't seen him on our rides lately he said he would like to tackle a short ride.
11 starters headed out through Ceres across to Bannockburn and met Doug at Russels Bridge lead by Noel Wills. At this point Doug took over lead rider duties and took us on some splendid motorcycle roads through Maude, into Sheoaks Rd to Meredith. Then back through Morrisons to Mt Egerton. Doug had to make a hurried toilet stop mid ride and was not deterred by 10 riders being close by! After Doug re mounted his trusty Yamaha we headed to our destination at Gordon.
The store has changed hands and the food standard has dropped off with only a meagre choice available. After refreshments and pleasant conversation, we headed to Ballan then onto Anakie Rd and Geelong with riders dispersing along the way.
Special thanks to Noel and Doug for lead rider duties and also Stan Rogers for T.E.C duties
Again, a great day with great people.
