Road rides

Saturday rides

We run a Saturday morning road ride, every fortnight, for our older kids and adults.

These rides aim to develop road riding experience, in a reasonably controlled environment, and provide the chance for some longer kilometres in the legs.

These rides are reliant on experienced adults and parents chaperoning the kids, to help make these rides as safe as possible.

Location

We meet at Lilies on the Park (Café), Bicentennial Park, ready to roll at 6.55am (sharp). Back by 9.00am.

Non-riding parents are asked to remain at Lilies Cafe so they can lend a hand, or come and pick up any riders, in need.

Groups

We run two groups, based on speed and road riding experience.

Fast group

43kms involving some rolling hills through Ermington and laps of Sydney Olympic Park.

Slow group

30-40kms out to Parramata Park and back. Much of this ride is on bike paths, with some road riding required.

Bike lights

Flashing lights, front and back, are a must for these rides.

Day-time lights are proven to improve visbility with drivers and pedestrians.

We reommend you invest and buy good quality lights that are USB rechargeable.

Want to join?

If you would like your child to join, or to lend a hand as an adult, and/or ride with your kid(s), please speak to our Ride Leaders – Tom Mahon and James Mahon.
