Bicycle ride from Port Melbourne to Williamstown

Sally, Bryce, Jeremy and I rode to Williamstown yesterday. It was an easy 19 km ride on a bicycle path most (95%) of the way from Port Melbourne. We had to get on a punt to get across the bay, which cost $12 return. Getting across the bay was pretty quick, roughly 10 minutes. The punt runs back and forth so we did not have to wait for long.

Below: Looking back at the jetty from the punt. The punt could only take 12 people plus bicycles, so one guy was left behind (the unlucky 13).


We had lunch and walked around a little in Williamstown and then cycled back to Port Melbourne. The weather was perfect, it was sunny with slight breeze...
