A social group of road bike riders for the new rider. Ride with experienced riders at a sedate pace on easy, quiet routes to learn the basics of group riding and riding in general.
Want to take the next step from just riding your bike on your own? This is the place.

Welcome to the group page of the Southern Suburbs Road Cyclists.
A road cycling group based in the southern suburbs. Home of the L ride, a great place to start if you are new to group cycling and want to join in.
Officially, we organise only the L ride, however this is quite a large group and many of us ride together at other times, members will usually organise other rides on here, so shout up if you want to join in.
If you're not sure where to start, this is probably the ride for you.
L rides are held weekly on a Saturday morning (routes and start/finish points vary), see the events for more details.
You're improving and can manage a longer ride at a slightly quicker pace.
P rides are held weekly on a Saturday morning (routes and start/finish points vary), see the events for more details.
The Green Ps!
You're a strong rider now and want a fast pace, but without the race!
'Green P' rides are planned to be held weekly on a Saturday morning (routes and start/finish points vary), see the events for more details. This is a new group so availability may vary according to who is available to lead these rides.
Special Event Rides
One off rides that are a bit special, these include long distance epics, climbing marathons and special occasion rides (Christmas special for example). There are no real generic guidelines for these rides as each one is different.
