A Bike Chick bike ride

I cycle with a small group of women from Metung and Lakes Entrance.  There are five of us and when we ride there can sometimes only be two, it just depends on who is available to ride on the day.  We try to get at least one ride a week but that is not always possible. We also like to do a ride that is more challenging for us and we have for the last three years done Around the Bay in Melbourne which is a fund raising ride.  The first year we rode 50 km and also the second year but this year we upped our effort and rode 100km. It is a great opportunity for us to get away together for a girls’ weekend.  We really enjoy ourselves.

Last weekend was my last bike ride for a few weeks with the chicks as I will be in New Zealand for three weeks. While I was riding I was reminding myself how lucky I am to live where I live.  We only rode 24 km in the area around our village but we finished off with lunch at the local pub, The Metung Hotel.  Click the link as they have great drone footage of the pub. The hotel is on the edge of the Gippsland Lakes so you couldn’t ask for a better location.

Our previous week’s ride was around Lakes Entrance, Lake Bunga and finishing at Kalimna.  We usually finish at a place that can provide lunch! The ride was very windy and we were glad when we finished.

Lake Bunga is on the left and that is the ocean in the distance.

This is the Kalimna Hotel which is off the beaten track.  You really wouldn’t know there was a hotel there unless you had been told about it.  The view from in front of the hotel is spectacular.

We had a great meal there and I managed to persuade my husband to go for a dinner there the following week.

There was a lovely sunset that evening and we went home via the Kalimna Jetty.
