The events calendar will give you an indication of the heart beat of the club and what is happening regarding races, social rides, weekly training rides, and special dates to remember.
The Club has regular morning training rides during the week and at weekends. There are two main groups which start in Hillcrest and Westville. The weekday rides generally finish around about 6.00 a.m. and there are back up vehicles which follow the groups. Weekend rides are longer. Times and routes are usually determined at the Friday coffee ride. Anyone, including non-members, are more than welcome to join these rides.
Normal training groups as follows: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – Oscars Hillcrest at 4.45 am
(With back up vehicle) Fridays – coffee/social ride.
B Group Rides: (because we all have to start somewhere) – Captain Iris Varty incharge
Tuesday: Winston Park and Hillcrest (+ 24km) mountain bikes
Wednesday: Circuits in Winston Park - 4 loops Road bikes - Start from Little Red Hen
Thursday: Hills (mountain bikes) (+ 22km)
Friday: Westville Cycle Club - Coffee Ride
Saturday: Tour de Suburbs (+ 40/50km)
Sunday: Distance ride + 70km
Start times: 4h45 from Oscars - Circuits 4h45 - Little Red Hen
Average speed of the group is only about 20km - hence the mountain bikes (big blade) for the
stronger riders. We ride as a group and re-group regularly, (as it's getting colder we prefer to roll
slowly instead of stopping). Circuits you're on your own.
Robots: If red... we stop. Simple
Keep left at all times
Bikes must have lights
It's very simple. Anyone is welcome - safety first.
