A ride for everyone. Our main aim is to unite the club right around that big bay. A core group rides around the bay on a tight schedule involving as many riders as possible. The target is 100 + rider participation. You can ride one, two legs, or right the way round. It's all about your choice and ability. Be at one of the meeting points with a full tank and geared up and ready to ride.  It's a charity ride too, so there's a $10 rider levy, donated to our Cambodia Project. Register at a meeting point and get your badge.

NOTE: We'll give the "All Clear" on this ride in the first week of December. There are significant roadworks taking place along the Nepean Hwy, and also around the Westgate Tunnel project, and last minute announcements may cause the cancellation of this ride. Keep checking back to this page. 


6.45 AM Geelong. The Edge Cafe. Refuel when you get to Yarraville so that you can make it home.  

8.30 AM Main ride leaves Yarraville. Dad and Dave's Cafe (Bus station)  Good breakfast and coffee too. 

9.00 AM St Kilda. Shakespeare Grove car park along Luna Park. A big meeting point! Be ready to go when the ride arrives.

1.00 PM Sorrento Ferry. $20 cash for Vespa Club members. $30 cash others. Have small notes ready to pay Julie as you pass through the gate.

Lunch is on the ferry. Bring something nutritious to eat, (or use the kiosk). We need you fed and alert for the rest of the ride.

1.45 PM Queenscliffride to Port Arlington. Don't miss the beauty of this ride. We'll refuel there. 'Buddy up' and share the pumps to save time. We'll ride to Geelong where we'll say farewell to the Geelong riders.

  • Corner markers needed.

    In particular Geelong to Geelong round trip.

    And Yarraville to Yarraville round trip.

    It's the usual call out for corner markers for the Around The Bay Ride. Can you help?? The ride can't happen wiyhout you.

    A Corner Marker.

    • Wears a distinctive Yellow Vest
    • Rides Behind the Ride Leader
    • Marks a corner as directed by the Ride Leader, directs the ride through, and waits for the Tail Rider. (probably once per leg)
    • Then rejoins the ride and makes their way to the front again at the next regroup.
    • Then repeats.

    We need a core group who can support the ride from Yarraville to Yarraville. Whatever you can do we need to know which sections you can help us: eg, "St Kilda to Sorrento"

    If you can help, please add your details as acomment below.
