Ride info

Sat 10am - NEW - 3-4 hours at social pace
Sun 11.00am - 3-4 hours at a social pace.

Wed 12noon-Mid week old blokes ride

Weds 6.30pm Night ride-all year

Because of the terrain all the rides include a degree of technical riding & the old adage of rider beware applies & each rider must take full responsibility for his or herself.

If you are unsure about the pace, a good benchmark is if you have to push your bike up road hills, the rides are probably not for you.
