Our Social rides will be moving to a monthly ride on the first Sunday of the month, commencing on the 5th of August. We will be meeting and leaving from the Boundary Rd carpark at 8am, and riding as a group through the park/ roadside trails. These rides are a great way to meet other members, in a social and relaxed environment.
For new riders/ members, we try to ensure we structure the ride to suit all abilities and fitness levels, so don’t be concerned about coming and being a part of the action. We often have riders leaving the group ride early because of time constraints or varying fitness abilities, and we will ensure if you are new to the trails, you get back to the starting point safely.
See you on the 5th!
