Sunday Morning Social Rides
Sunday Morning social rides - These rides leave at 8:30, Meeting outside the Suncourt Plaza to start. Distance and pace can vary in kms and speed dependant on riders. We will regroup at designated points along the way. Please remember to bring 2 water bottles, food, spare tube & pump and most importantly some $ for a coffee at the end of the ride. The Fine Fettle is a great spot for the post ride coffee, for those that drop off or change the curcuit come along and join in for a chat.
These rides are a great way to experience the beauty of our district, and its always more fun riding with a group. These rides are a social pedal, not a race, which gives cyclists an opportunity to gather together for a pleasant Sunday morning ride. All visitors are welcome.
Everybody is welcome.
