What we're about
MELBOURNE CYCLING is a meetup cycling group that organises bike rides several times a week around Melbourne and beyond. There are events along metropolitan roads as well as bike paths and we travel even 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. (You'll only need to RSVP a "No" if changing your mind later) \
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. \
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.
You'll find us here on Facebook for discussions: https://www.facebook.com/groups/melbcycling...
