Weekly Club Rides
All rides are suited to road bikes only, given the speed of the rides. Each group has a selected a ride leader who will provide guidance and support during the ride to assist with technique, as required and may provide instructions for group safety. Each rider is responsible for their own safety and should feel empowered to speak up when they see what they consider a safety issue.
