What we're about
The ORIGINAL and longest running Victorian Mountain Biking Group on Meetup, with over 7 years of free events, run by real cyclists, for real cyclists.
Membership requirements... just 2 steps.
1) Answer 5 quick questions about yourself and riding preferences to create your profile.
2) Upload a recognisable photo of yourself to your CVOR profile (we use this to help identify our members).
Keep up to date with our Facebook page too.
We're here to discover and enjoy the trails, tracks, paths, rail trails and roads throughout Victoria, with the occasional interstate or overseas trip. From short social rides, all day or weekend trips, getting muddy on Mountain Bike trails, even the odd road ride, we try to cater to everyone's needs. We also run irregular Beginner MTB days and Bike Maintenance Workshops.
Suitable for everyone, regardless of bicycle type*, riding style or fitness level*. We welcome and encourage input and suggestions from all of our members. Anyone can help create and/or host a CVOR event. Our Membership and Events are free, except when we need to pay 3rd parties for transport, coaching, equipment or accommodation.
We have forums help inform members of great places to ride, events to attend, how to keep your bike running smoothly, new products, where to get the best prices, safety issues and any other chats related to cycling.
We provide the Meetup website platform as a free service to our members, however the website does charge us a fee. So please consider the option of a small donation to help us cover the bi-annual website fees.
* Note: Most of our rides are based Off Road, so a MTB is required for most (but not all) of our rides. Likewise, some of our rides will require reasonable technical experience, and/or high fitness levels. Please ensure you read the ride description fully before you RSVP to an event.
E-Bikes may be used on our events, however they must be "Pedal Assist", and a commercially built E-Bike with a 250w and 25km/h restriction. Petrol powered bicycles are not permitted to be used on our events at any time.
