Wednesday Otways Loop

Last week’s planned mid-week ride through the Otways had to be postponed due to the severe weather and torrential rain that most of Victoria copped. Things were not looking a whole lot better in the weather forecast for this week. However, the weather gods smiled upon us and we enjoyed a brilliant Spring day for the ride. We left Waurn Ponds McDonalds and travelled to Gellibrand for morning tea via Deans Marsh. From here, we rode up to Lavers Hill then turned on to the Great Ocean Road and really enjoyed the twisty roads through the bush to Apollo Bay. We ‘dined’ at the Apollo Bay bakery in beautiful sunshine, the fuelled up and headed for Geelong via Forrest. (The GOR is closed at Skene’s Creek due to land slides) All up, the roads were dry, the traffic was light and the company was great. Thanks to Don W for Tail-End-Charlie duties.
