Members please note: At our Feb 2019 committee meeting it was voted that we will implement a new start time of 8am during the months of NOV through to end of FEB each year.
Thursday rides originally started as a loop on local cycleways doing about 10km. As the riders have become stronger and more experienced, this has progressed into 20 - 30km, easy to medium rides, which is currently the case.
Ride destinations and routes may be varied by ride leaders on the day due to the circumstances. New riders may prefer a short easy 10km ride, so please advise us by calling Doug on 0411 615 867 two days prior to the ride.
Riders meet at 9:15am for a 9.30am start. Bring your own bike, helmet & spare tube/puncture repair kit or hire from the club. Ride is free. Make sure you contact the club first; ring Joe on 0403 323 273 or the clubhouse phone 0418 954 682 on the day.
