Yarra Punt

Darebin B U G Ride


We rode out west to Point Cook on Sunday to visit
friends.  This involved the usual ride to Port Melbourne
and then on to take the punt across the Yarra under
the West Gate Bridge.

We then followed the coastal path through Williamstown, Seaholme
and Aircraft.





The punt was running a shuttle service across the river.
The trip took about 5 minutes.

Speaking of canines, at our friend's place this one really
wanted to come in, but was well trained.

After a beaut mid afternoon BBQ lunch with our friends
we rode back to Aircraft and caught a train to town.
  On the train we met members of the Bayside Bicycle Touring Club
on their way home to Mordialloc from their Sunday ride.

We then joined the Darebin Bicycle Users Group at
Flinders St Station for their 6:00 p.m. ride to St Kilda Pier.

Here we are heading along St Kilda Road.
