Ride to Work Day 2009

Wednesday October 14th saw many Geelong residents take part in the 2009 Ride to Work Day. The City of Greater Geelong is put on a breakfast and entertainment for participants at the City Hall Forecourt.

The early morning rain may have dissuaded some participants, but plenty of riders still took part. Well done to all those who rode to work.

A new section of road has been completed in Eastern Park to create new possibilities for criterium races. The road links Hearne Parade with the existing Eastern Park circuit. The short steep climb of the link will make for a more challenging course.

See the COGG media release for more information.
