Group Rides In Geelong

Postby mello11 » Tue Jan 21, 2014 10:16 am

Hi,

I have recently moved to Geelong and I am looking for Sat and Sun Morning Group Rides (intermediate level) that roll out of Grovedale/Armstrong Creek area. Loops heading towards either Ocean Grove, Torquay or Barwon Heads!

Cheers

There used to be a group that rolled out from the Grovedale hotel most if not all days around 6:30. Intensity changed from day to day, from memory saturday was a fast torquay return. There used to be some groups that roll out from Bunnings in Waurn Ponds as well.

If you go into Degrandi's they used to have a little flyer on the counter with details of all thr group rides around Geelong (treat it only as a guide though)

I used to ride with these guys before moving away.

Waurn Ponds Bunch Ride

From memory they used to leave from Bunnings Waurn ponds on Saturday around 7am for a long-ish ride and then on Sunday at 8am for 13th beach and Barwon Heads

It was a good welcoming and very inclusive group to ride with.

Thanks Fraggle I will certainly give them a try. BTW how far were the Saturday long-ish rides you mentioned?

If you click on word "Saturday" (in blue) it will take you to the website of the ride.
But to answer your question I think the website mentioned 90kms

Happy riding
Fraggle
