Event Description

The holiday makers have all gone home so who wants to ride the GOR to Lorne and enjoy the views. This is an easy ride from Geelong, speed limit is 80 kmh (less if stuck behind a tourist), so everyone is invited to join! If you are riding from Melbourne your Vespa needs to sit on 90+ kph to get there and back.

  • Leave the Edge 10.30 sharp
  • head to Torquay on the back roads
  • thru to Jan Juc check out Bird Rock
  • then over to the famous Bells Beach and a stop off at the spectacular Pt Addis
  • arrive at Lorne 
  • after everyone is fed and watered over to Teddys lookout for some amazing views
  • back on the road a stop off at Great Ocean Road Gin Tasting Room
  • head back to G'town arriving about 2.30-3.00
  • Could change as we get closer to the date.

Please note that this ride starting from Melbourne requires you and your vespa to be able to sit comfortably on at least 90km p/h.  That means on your speedo your dial will read 100kms as vespas are known to be out by 10% if you didn't already know that.  If you don't feel your are ready then please consider the ride next Sunday around the city laneways of Melbourne.  Thank you

Hi Greg,

Probably Geelong for a fill up it’s only about 60k Geelong to Lorne so you could fill up again in Geelong on the way home. Less busy in Geelong too.

cheers,

John

Hi John

We'll organize a Melbourne group into this ride.

But we will definitely need to be back at Geelong at 2.30 Pm to get home.

Where should we fill up? Geelong or Torquay?
