Training and Social Rides

Looking for a group of riders to train with?

The following are regular rides in the Stawell and Horsham areas.

New riders are always welcome. However, occassionally a change to the usual routine may occur, so contact the listed person to check that the ride is on if you wish to join the group.

These rides usually have riders of mixed ability. Riders do not have to take a turn at the front of the bunch if they are not strong enough or do not wish to.

Stawell Area

Saturday Morning Coffee Run - Social Ride

This is more of a relaxed social ride, with an average speed of around 28kph to 30kph. Meet at Federation Park (opposite Mitre 10, near the Halls Gap turn off on the Western Highway).

The ride leaves at 8:30am on Saturday all year round, proceeding to Halls Gap for a coffee, and then returns, arriving back in Stawell about 11.00am. Total distance about 55km.

This is a regular ride throughout the summer, but may stop through the coldest months of winter, although in recent years has carried right through the winters. Contact Cliff Dudley on 5358 5801 or 0417 642 323 for details.

Horsham Area

Training Rides

Week Days
A group of riders meets every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at the Horsham Velodrome, McPherson St, Horsham, at 6pm sharp. Don't forget your lights after daylight saving finishes!

Often the group splits up into different paced bunches, according to the various riders abilities.

For more information, contact Drew Heard on Mob 0408 822091

Saturday Morning Coffee Runs (ride first coffee afterwards)
7:15am - a more advance group leaves the Horsham Velodrome for a 40km ride.
7:00am - a larger group, some on mountain bikes, leaves the Horsham velodrome. Ride distances vary according to the wishes of those present.
