Ulysses Vic Meet & Greet 25th March

This was the first Meet and Greet at the new venue of Vaughan Springs. Unfortunately the weather forecast was somewhat diabolical, with all sorts of severe weather warnings out – and this no doubt had an impact on the numbers. That said, it was a great success with a vast range of Vic Ulysses Branches represented. A big thanks to Gentle, Lindsay, Mal, Phil and Mac for doing the site set up and the cooking and new members Terry and Travis for helping with the food serving.

I led a group of seven who braved the dire weather forecast and rode up from the Corio Bay Roadhouse. Peter B, Stan & Marlene travelled to Vaughan Springs independently and Mac and Mal rode up earlier to help with the set up. Surprisingly we didn’t encounter any rain at all. Although the wind was a bit annoying, we still had an enjoyable ride – particularly the section of the run home through the bush via Vaughan Springs Road, Spring Hill Road, and Trentham down to Blackwood and Greendale. The official ride finished at Anakie. Thanks to Grassy for volunteering to be TEC for the group ride. Pics by Jules and Stan.


Jamieson weekend 3 & 4 March

We had a great weekend away on the bike on the weekend of 3rd and 4th March. The ride was organised by ‘Gentle’ from the Geelong Ulysses Club Branch, and as always, the route planning was excellent. We really got into the groove of riding the twisties, especially the section of road from Eildon to Jamieson – which is my new favourite road. Map below & some pics courtesy of Stan Kluzek.
