On the Bellarine Peninsula via bike, with resident Doug

Organised by the Lifestyle team, bike rides on the Arcare ‘Rover’ are a way to get out and about whilst chatting to locals and seeing the views that are on Arcare Point Lonsdale’s doorstep.

The bike ride winds gently through beach scrub and leads out to expansive views of the bay and the ocean. Locals are used to seeing the bike and catch up for a chat, helping facilitate community connection for residents and people who live and work around the Bellarine.

Douglas has recently moved into Arcare Point Lonsdale and this was his first ever Bellarine Peninsula beach visit. Lifestyle Team Member, Jill, who helps organise the journeys encouraged Doug to go on a bikeride as a way to welcome him to the area. Originally residing in Doncaster, it’s a nice way to transition to beachside living with an Arcare Lifestyle team that organizes a range of diverse and stimulating daily activities.

“You just don’t get this kind of experience in a car, I’ll be coming back on it!” he told us, beaming.
