Rotary Cycling Fellowship Weekly Ride

Weekly Bike Ride Group










Dear bike riders

The District Cycling Fellowship has a ride every Sunday leaving at 8am prompt, from different starting points. We generally ride for about 35-45kms in 2 – 2 1/2 hours. We go at the speed of the slowest rider with a strict no drop rule. We always have a café stop either half way or at the end for a chat. If you plan to ride with the group for the first time then please phone Ron otherwise just turn up ready to go at 8am. We are always looking for new riders to join us. You do not have to be a Rotarian. You may be a friend of Rotary or a prospective Rotarian. We would love to hear from you.

Ron Brooks
D9810 Cycling Fellowship Coordinator

If you want to chat about any of the rides, then give Ron a ring on 0413 042 043 or email Ron.
