Cycling for fun, fitness and friendship – since 2007
Sunday morning rides. The ride courses vary from week to week and generally are along cyclist friendly routes that avoid main roads. Suitable for road bikes and e-bikes. Depending on numbers and fitness levels, there will be one or two groups.
Distances vary, but usually around 40 to 60 km.
Rides may start from various locations, so if you are considering riding with the group please phone to check where the start location will be.
