Cycling adventures of 20 - 120 km for fit adults (18+) interested in improving their cycling abilities while discovering new bike routes and exploring all of the amazing and different flora, fauna and culture in our area.
There are different rides every week year-round with some overnight camping excursions during the summer months.
We offer a variety of ride types with speeds from 15-24 kph to meet the interests of a wide variety of cyclists.
We have 3 kinds of rides:
Smell The Roses - for beginners or those happy with a slower pace. The routes tend to be shorter and avoid the hills. The ride will move as slowly as the slowest rider, no pressure. The name of all of these rides will begin with the phrase "Smell The Roses". Average speed: < 15 kph. Tours - average to advanced cyclists. These tend to have a theme with a lot of stops of interest along the way. Could involve hills and distance. The name of these rides will end in "Tour". Average speed: 15 - 18 kph. Rides - for better than average to advanced cyclists. These tend to have a single destination for a picnic lunch and involve faster speeds, greater distances and more challenging terrain. The name of these rides will end in "Ride". Average speed: 18 - 24 kph.
N.B.It isn't fair to come on a ride if you are not capable of keeping up with the rest of the group. Please read the ride descriptions carefully - especially the Terrain Rating - and assess your abilities honestly. If you find that the rest of the group is having to wait for you to catch up, then please have the courtesy to leave the ride. Try rides at lower levels (1 or 2 above) and come back for a level 3 ride when you are ready!
