What we're about
“This is a group that focuses on fitness and vitality and improving general energy levels, and is for those who are primarily in the 20 - 40 age group, but we don't discriminate against older members, so long as they can maintain a reasonably good pace, which at times will be somewhat sprightly; being 25kph or more.
Naturally the name of the group is derived from it's location, being perfectly positioned at the gateway of the premiere outer south eastern cycling locations.
Although we are located in Montrose, the MonARC group encompasses the Yarra Valley and greater surrounds, with it's picturesque locations and attactions.
Another important aspect of this group is that it's not discipline specific. You can ride any kind of bike you like, be it a road bike, mountain bike, hybrid, cyclocross or even a Penny-Farthing, so long as you can maintain the pace.
All skills levels are welcome, though it would be beneficial to have a reasonably good base level of fitness to build on, and lets face it, even the greatest champions had to start somewhere, so we have brought this group into fruition to meet other outdoor enthusiasts, with a focus on cycling, but not limited to cycling, as a great social dynamic is just as important as a healthy level of fitness and vitality.
Looking forward to exploring the outdoors with everybody, of which there will be events to cater to everyone's taste.
