What we’re about

MELBOURNE CYCLING is a meetup cycling group that was founded in 2008 and we organise recreational bike rides several times a week around Melbourne and beyond. Please expand this section and read through it before joining, thanks.

There are group rides along metropolitan roads as well as bike paths and sometimes we travel further out of town for country road-rides, rail trails and weekends away.

Scroll our Past Meetups page for an insight into what we've been doing lately or browse the Calendar for past and future events. New rides are announced to members by email so you can RSVP a "Yes" to reserve a place. (No need to respond with "No" unless cancelling your attendance.

Rides vary in speed, fitness level and distance so there will be something for most and ride speeds will usually be posted on each ride description where applicable. Beginners / novices will find the slower and shorter rides more suitable and more advanced riders can find longer and hilly rides to go harder / longer / faster, etc. Between all our ride leaders (Event Hosts) there are usually enough rides posted for each weekend to suit everyone, weather permitting.

IMPORTANT: If you are joining, please use a real name on your account (It's a matter of trust as you'll be meeting real people so keep it real) and answer all five questions. Do upload a recognisable profile picture of yourself (It can be different to your main Meetup account pic) and add a short introduction to your profile as well. It helps the leaders a lot.

Also, do check your app for any changes the night before, and on the morning of the ride, as the ride may be cancelled in the event of extreme weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

And, if you realise you cannot make it to the ride please change your RSVP to 'NO' immediately even if you are still on the Waitlist.

You'll find us here on Facebook for discussions:

There is annual $5 voluntary subscription based on your membership date, should you wish to pay. Meetup charge the Organiser every six months to keep the group going and we have some other small expenses so your donation is appreciated.
Payment is accepted using: Cash or bank transfer. You can pay Neil on a ride or into BSB 814282 Acc 50572735 direct to Neil Griffiths. Reference your name please so we know who sent the donation. If you direct deposit then let Neil know by a meetup message as sometimes your name is cut short by the banking transfer system and I need to record it against your Melbourne Cycling profile (not visible to anyone else).
FastPay, if your bank app has it, is also available to PayID 0419560409 (Neil's phone number) and will transfer into our Special Account.
Please note, I won't know your membership name if your bank knows you by another name. Message me privately on Meetup or SMS, please.

So you are most welcome to join in with like minded folk and enjoy your love of cycling with us.
