One of the many ways to celebrate Australia Day in Geelong was to get your ride out and go for a cruise! This time, over one hundred tough and cool rides gathered at the Cotton On carpark in Seperation st, North Geelong before heading down the coast to the St. Leonards Hotel for a bite to eat, a cool drink and a catch up with friends. The cruise passed through the quiet country town of Drysdale which didn’t know what hit them as classics and modified rides headed through the main street before turning off in one of two directions towards the destination point.

Well, once again the guys and girls of the Colac custom car and bike show organisation have turned on a fantastic weekend starting with Friday night’s drive-in movie, The Blues Brothers , Saturday’s show n shine seeing around 500 cars and bikes attend and Sunday’s cruise to Inverleigh!
Memorial Square located centrally in Colac lends itself perfectly as a family friendly setting for such a show with participants coming from as far as Melbourne and far west Victoria. The variety of vehicles and bikes on show is astounding from classic vintage, custom, street/strip, late model and just plain wild! There was even a top fuel rail on show with fire up demonstrations drowning out the live band temporarily while drawing a large crowd!
Trade stands filled the outer edge of the square while food and beverages could be found courtesy of the local Lions club tent and other assorted venues. Sit down meals were easily located just outside the show at a number of pubs and eateries.
Sunday saw a more relaxed atmosphere with breakfast at the local RSL and then a leisurely cruise to the quiet country pub located in Inverleigh allowing Geelong/ Melbourne participants the chance of meeting some of the sociable Colac crew while heading in the right direction for home.
This is just a short selection of what was on show and was going on in the scenic country town of Colac over the weekend. Watch this space for more pics, a DVD slideshow and write-up on this spectacular event!
I don’t get much of a chance to check out these Monday night events but I did tonight and found it to be a great way to rid yourself of Mondayitis. While the gathering was small, the range of rides was varied as can be seen in the pics. This happens the second Monday of evey month thoughout daylight savings at the Geelong showgrounds, put on by the Geelong Street Rodders. Hey, I even walked away with a new screwdriver set from the raffle! Now I can really fix this bloody computer!!
Keep on cruisin’
