Weekly Bike Ride Group

Dear bike riders

The D9810 Cycling Fellowship group leaves every Sunday at 8am for a 2-2 ½ hr ride (35 to 40kms) on the bike tracks around Melbourne (see list below). We do not ride on the open roads. The bike tracks are almost all sealed (tarmac or concrete). We always stop for coffee & cake and a chat.

Rotarians, partners, friends of Rotary are all welcome.  You do not have to say you are coming.  Just turn up.  If you want to chat about any of the rides then give me a ring on 0413 042 043 or email me.

We go at the pace of the slowest rider and do not leave anyone behind. If you haven’t ridden with us before, then please contact me first.

As well as our weekly rides we generally have 5 or 6 brunches a year at various homes after the ride when partners join us, plus 2 or 3 riding weekends away with partners.
