Join our weekly friendly group rides
Join our weekly cycle groups as they head out from Manly twice a week for a social and training rides. Riding as a group has many benefits, it’s safer, you gain strength and experience riding with other mixed ability riders, it’s way more fun and safer than riding alone and there’s always someone to tow you home!! Join us for our FREE social group rides, they are open to anyone and don’t cost a cent.
Our lead riders are experienced cyclists in triathlon, time trials and cycle racing, so they have lots of knowledge, and love to share.
Don’t worry that you’re not faster enough as we split the group into abilites. These rides are aimed at helping you gain confidence on the roads and endurance to ride faster and longer. Whatever your speed or experience we encourage you to come along and give it a go. You’re more than welcome to join us for a cafe stop when we return to Manly, always the perfect end to a ride.
Rides are suitable for cyclists who have experience riding on roads and want to build more confidence, strength and stamina. If you are new to riding we strongly encourage you to attend turbo classes or one of our cycle workshops first to build skills on the bike before riding in a bunch.
Please note we recommend road bikes for these rides. No mountain bikes or single speeds unless you are 100% sure you are strong enough to keep up! Cycle helmets are compulsory, no helmet no ride.
Please ensure you have the following before you ride, cycle helmet, ID, tyre levers, spare inner tubes, pump, 2 x 750ml bottle of water (1 should be sports drink), food for the ride (banana, sports bars etc), cash for a post ride latte and muffin!
