Last year in fact we had more bikes that any other recent event, well worth the effort. see you there. ( further details can be found in the website "Calendar"

Mid Week rides
 
Come and join us on one of our ever popular mid week rides.
We always try for new roads and destinations but unfortunately we have travelled most within about a 250 km. radius of the meeting point, so if you have what you consider to be a day ride/destination that could be of interest to your fellow members and visitors, please rock up at the Tower Hotel, 621 Magill Road, Magill, 5072 and lead us astray, we'd love that.
 
Our next mid week is on Wednesday the 14th. of May, 2014.

Ride Etiquette.
 
On rare occasions on recent rides, lead riders have taken off without using their mirrors to ensure that the rest of the riders are still with him/her. In cities or larger towns the group can easily be separated by other traffic or traffic lights, and of course in the country, if the leader cannot see the group, how will they be aware of a breakdown or worse, an accident?.  So please watch out for your following rider, even on dirt, take time to look.
Courtesy can be contageous, try it.
 

Please be aware that rides may be cancelled at short notice due to inclement weather or for any other reason deemed neccessary by the Club Captain or the ride Co-ordinator. If you are unsure of an event, contact details can be found in this site under "Contact Us".
