Organised Rides have a stated destination, are generally longer and may take up to the whole day.

Club Rides There is a branch ride every Sunday. Distances (total) and time away (approximate) are provided. Rides will vary between distance rides (200km+) and rides to more local destinations. Something to suit everyone.

Casual Rides are also afternoon rides, where riders meet, decide on a destination, and organise themselves. There may be a Ride Leader assigned, but if there is not then the group determine this for themselves.

Saturday Rides:

These usually depart around 11:30-ish after coffee from ‘The Honest Lawyer Country Pub’      

 Remember to start your ride with a full tank of petrol.
