A great ride and so very well organised with lead and tail riders and and corner markers. Thanks to all of you. The club certainly had a positive impact judged from the reaction of the cyclists on Beach Road, Joe Public everywhere and even some of the Harley riders.

WOW what a great event! Even though my Vespa would not start and I was unable to ride.... following the Vespa crew from Queenscliff to Corio Quay in my daughters red beatle...was amazing. Was so thrilling watching all the Vespa's ahead of me! Great job to all organisers, ride leaders and tailers, corner great that novice riders.....(which I still believe I am) feel so safe with such a supportive club...2018 round the bay ....rock on!!!!! Special thanks to Greg, Julie and Tufan (and others) for keeping the riders safe!!! What a great club

For my first club event, thank you for a well organised and welcoming event. Well done to all involved. Looking forward to next years already.

thank you for permitting me to join you all at Safety Beach, for the run down to Sorrento. Brief as it was for me, I had a great BUZZ just keeping up with a duper group of people. 

I must say you had 3 rather enthusiastic riders with loud exhausts, but I guess it was all in the moment of the day.

Nice to meet Julie (momentarily) and see you all off on the ferry.

AUDREY enjoyed her first outing!

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to the organisers, the ride leaders, the ride tails and the corner markers - a fanstasitc job that helpd the day run so smoothly. And of course, not to forget the riders - great riding together, freindly, protective, caring and looking out for each other. What a fantastic day it was...

Ok, Geelong riders, who was the rider that had a fall ? Let us know you are ok

Julie and Greg....I was already to go at 0645hrs and my vespa would not start!!! Just had it serviced at Peter Stevens...picked her up on issues then...but today nothing. By the time I drove down to the Edge every one had gone at at least they got off on time. I will get my brother to check her out this morning and if she starts I hope to see you at the Ferry in Queenscliff.... Devastated just a little bit. Have a great ride  Kelly
