Bicycle Victoria_Ron Shepherd
Founding father and an honorary lifetime member of Bicycle Network.

He was a towering figure in Victorian cycling, who sadly passed away in January 2004.

According to Keith Dunstan, an old friend of Ron’s:

“Ron Shepherd was the master touring cyclist. There was not a touring cyclist he did not touch.

“He was the driving force who brought back the bicycle to Melbourne, and the great bicycling boom that began in the early 1970s. It continues even now.”
