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


MELB Ride down

We will safely zip down the highway in the early morning at 8 am. Your Vespa needs to be able to do 90 kph. We will have breakfast in Geelong. 

The usual meeting advice is below.

We cruise down together from Brooklyn at 8 am, and the ride speed is modified to accommodate all Vespa attending. We look after each other!

Meeting at the BP SERVO in Brooklyn, Geelong Road.


Good fuel Coffee! Better amenities

This is the second last servo before entering the freeway to Geelong.

If you want to ride together then be here in time to leave at 8 AM ...

It's a short half hour ride to the outer suburbs of Geelong.

Hi All,

This ride was to be a pleasant Sunday ride down the GOR but due to the extreme heat on Sunday it will be difficult and potentially unsafe, the beach traffic going down will be chaotic particularly for Melbourne riders going home.So in consultation with Julie I have postponed this ride for a 

later date.

So pencil in 17th March and I will update as we get closer.

all the best

Unfortunately, due to a back injury I will be unable to attend on Sunday....unless I improve significantly in the next 24 hours.

Hi John

Just a suggestion to save some time.

Melbourne riders will fill up in Geelong before we get to The Edge.

If all riders have  a full tank when they get to The Edge, then we could probably all depart at 10 am - and get it moving along.

Just a thought, as 1 and half hours at The Edge for breakfast seems a long time.

Suggesting 9.45 or 10.00 departure, and rule: If you are departing from The Edge, you already have a full tank of fuel.
