Welcome

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.

L Rides

If you're not sure where to start, this is probably the ride for you.

  • Designed for beginners/new riders or those returning to riding
  • Flatish routes
  • Quiet roads
  • Learn group riding skills
  • Regular re-groups
  • Sedate pace (20kmh)
  • Approx 40km
  • Tailend charlie to ensure no one gets left behind

 

L rides are every fortnight on a Saturday morning (routes vary), see the events for more details.

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.

My Friday meeting moved to Thursday, so I am now good to go Friday (eg Paul got confused and thought it was Friday meeting but it was always Thursday, Doh), 550 am Friday works for me from Corner of Bains and Panatalinga.

Any other takers?
