The rides are a very social activity and generally take a different route each week. The routes traverse many of the Tuggeranong shared paths (bike paths), some foot paths, some short sections of suburban roads and sometimes short sections of smooth dirt paths. The routes always include a coffee shop either during or at the end of the ride.
We ride along at a reasonably gentle pace. After much coffee, raisin toast and chat we disband. Those who rode to the start venue peel off the return route at various points to return to their homes. Those that brought bikes by car ride back to their cars at the start, usually accompanied by the activity leader.
The Activity Leader carries bike tools, a pump and a puncture repair kit.
If the weather is unrideable then we have the option to drive or ride straight to the designated coffee shop.
The activity leader sends a group email on Thursday afternoon/evening advising of the route and likely weather conditions.
The start point for the Friday rides is the BBQ area at the car park next to the Skatepark, Tuggeranong.
SUMMER: 9.00 am (but by mutual agreement 8.00am / 8.30 am in heat wave conditions)
WINTER: 10.00 am
Depending on the route chosen the rides are around 45 minutes to 1 hr 15 mins.
New riders are very welcome and should contact the activity leader by email to be added to the group email list, or ring.
