Brisbane Bicycling Meetup Group (BBM) is all about fun and friendship. This group is for cyclists who love cycling but prefer to cycle at a more relaxed pace, take time to enjoy the scenery, make new friends, share experiences and support each other. The main purpose is to encourage cycling and socializing in a safe, friendly and healthy environment.
We aim to meet at least once a week, mostly on Sunday mornings at 7.00 am (weather permitting) for a social ride at various locations around Brisbane and socialize with a coffee break either half way or at the end. Occasionally, we will meet at 9.00 am on either Saturday or Sunday mornings for our favourite ride from Kalinga Park to Nudgee Beach or to Shorncliffe.
Our weekly rides are ranging from 20 km to 70 km or more. We ride at a social pace. Many of our rides are on bike paths, shared pathways, some roads, some off-roads and some hills. Occasionally, we will organize some faster paced and longer distance rides and also some evening moon light rides. Cycling tours, charity rides, mountain biking adventures and other non-cycling events such as a get together dinner and drinks will also be considered in the future. We will do our best to accommodate everyone and for all levels of fitness. however, you are encouraged to read the event descriptions and choose an event that is best suited to your ability.
We welcome all types of bikes, road bikes, hybrid bikes, mountain bikes as long as they are in good working condition.
Wearing cycling clothes is a personal choice. However, for comfort, padded pants and shorts, faster drying breathable shirts, biking gloves are recommended. Helmets are mandatory.
For easy identification, your Meetup profile should show a clear picture of yourself. Some form of identifications and emergency contact details should also be carried when participating our events, in case of an emergency.
We encourage our members to suggest and host events. If you would like to lead a ride, please contact one of our Organizers in the group.
A gold coin donation is appreciated at each event to help with Meetup fee and other associated costs in organizing events for member's enjoyment.
We look forward to meeting you!
