Thursday Arvo Ride

March 30, 2014

We rode out to Fingal and couldn't believe the damaged caused by recent storm.

I have been ill and have not ridden since the storm.  What a great job that firstly the SES and then council have done and by the look of things will continue to do for a while to come.

The path from Corlette shop into the Marina is now fully opened.  Colin who rode with us today said it sections were closed earlier in the week when he tried to ride it.

Rides

April 4, 2013

Our rides are listed on Push On which is the Bicycle NSW rides calendar  http://www.pushon.com.au/rides/RidesCalendar_unfiltered.asp

We have now made the calander on this site available for people to add their own rides.  We receive an email advising us that a ride or event has been added and if applicable it can be added to Push On.  It has always been our aim to get people together to ride, eventually taking a backseat and enjoying rides organized by others to compliment some rides we will put on.

Information about our rides

Our rides cater for all ages and standards.  Rides are over various distances and pace.  We have beginners rides where instructions are provided about bike set up, maintenance, dealing with traffic and gear selection.  We are not a racing club but do some moderate paced rides.  For the most part we go as slow as the slowest rider, however as we grow we hope to be able offer more individual rides at different grading separately.  We will work on the grades of EASY MODERATE and FAST. Bicycle NSW(BNSW) have guidelines around grades of rides. 

An approved helmet is a must, water bottle and either a spare tube or repair kit and pump are recommended although the leader should have a pump and basic repair kit.

At this point we only offer road rides that are on cycle paths, cycle ways and roads, we hoping to get some members who could lead off road MTB rides.  Let us know if you can do that.

Cycling is a moderately dangerous activity and anyone riding with us do so at their own risk.

Our partner Bicycles Network Australia is a useful source of information about all things cycling
