Hey guys,
Just wondering what the typical route for cyclists around the Geelong area is and where about they go?

Coastal rides for the win - Portarlington, Ocean Grove/Barwon Heads (via 13th beach), Torquay, Anglesea or a combination of those is my usual. For those looking to exercise their inner mountain goat, head towards ceres. Have a look at the Amy's Ride Routes on the Amy Gillett website, quite a nice little course.

Ride the Worlds course 11 times....Ok maybe not 11 times but a few laps would hurt. We rode it on Saturday and the climbs are good, flats are fast The climbs are an avg of 4% I think and go up to 17%. And at the end....you can get a coffee.

Is the Grovedale Hotel and/or the Bunnings Waurn Ponds bunch rides still going?

7 am on Saturdays for both rides and 8am on Sundays for the Bunning Waurn Ponds if that's any help.

Think the Grovy Hotel one is, not sure about the Bunnings. Grovy on a Sat morning used to be a pretty quick ride. Also check aty DeGrandi's, they used to have a list of rides leaving from the shop and from memory there was almost one every day. Rides arent afiiliated with the store AFAIK, it just happens to be the meeting point.
