Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Saturday 13th September 2008 50th anniversary of Russel's tragic death.
A few of his old fans will meet at Kelly's Hotel the start sight of the 13th Tour of Gippsland. At 9.45am they will ride their old racing bikes the 2.1 miles to the Clayton/Dandenong Rd corner for a minutes silence at 10.15am.
A simple tribute to a great racing cyclist that ment so much to so many.
Kelly's Hotel is now known as Leeoak Tabaret situated on the corner of Atkinson St and Dandenong Rd (Princess Hwy) Mellways 69G6.
The short ride can be travelled mainly on the Service Rd so is quite traffic safe, the Clayton /Dandenong Rd corner remains a congested intersection so take care. Probably the South West corner offers the most space for a stand to.
All welcome no matter what you ride.
