Geraldine Hickey's Excursion


Sunday 10 November, 2-4.30pm
Departing from St Ali North

Hey Ladies! YEAH? Hey fellas YEAH? Can you hear me? YEAH. Ok then. I’ll stop shouting. Forgive us, we are excited that our second Pushy Women Excursion is just days away, happening THIS SUNDAY 10 November featuring the very funny Geraldine Hickey.

Geraldine will be leading us on a Lonely Hearts tour de wheels. Quite possibly the only way time you will ever do couple stuff with lots of people even if you arrive alone. Sounds weird? – we HOPE SO. The Pushy Women Excursions are a relaxed day out of riding, designed to give you a warm glow about riding a bike and being with other people, in this case, women (but guys are welcome too!)

Sunday’s ride will start out at our gracious hosts, St Ali North with a free coffee and bicycle tune up from Velo Cycles. There is 10km of riding planned, but it will be at a relaxed and sociable pace, so you needn’t worry about working up a sweat!

Along the way Geraldine will lead us on her lonely hearts tour of the inner north, taking in an ice cream shop, the Edinburgh Gardens, Arts Projects Australia, High St Northcote and winding up at the Abbotsford Convent. Along the way she will no doubt regale us with humorous insights and recollections of things past.

If you haven’t heard of Geraldine, a word from her bio ….’a local comedian with an unselfconscious charm and a superb skill for finding the funny in true stories. She is very excited about coming on board with the Pushy Women Excursion project basically because she’s just happy to have a reason to be out of the house, and having spent her child hood cruising the streets on her Apollo 13 the chance of recapturing those memories is one of the best reasons to be out of the house.’

What more need we say?
