Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne

Hi all,

This week our social ride will be starting from Gisborne. Meet at Wheelspeed Cycles, 4/50 Aitken Street, Gisborne at 8:50am, for a 9am start. There will be 2 ride options this week, both going out around the Barringo Valley. The shorter route will go out, round the Barringo Valley and back to the shop again, about 30k. The longer route will go out to Woodend, over Mount Macedon, around the Barringo Valley and back to the shop. Hopefully we will all be back at the shop at roughly the same time to go for a coffee.

Sunday Social Ride – 20th January

Hi all,

The social ride this week will leave from The Emporium at 89 Piper Street, Kyneton. There will be just one route this week, the Summerhill Circuit. This is a 50k circuit we often use for racing (so would be good to learn this route if you plan to race later in the year!) You can view the route here:


As always, we’ll meet at 8:50am for a ride briefing, and leave at 9am. At the end of the ride, we’ll have a coffee at The Emporium.

Look forward to seeing as many members as possible!

Sunday Social Ride – 13th January

Hi all!

This Sunday will see the start of our weekly Sunday Social Rides. These social rides will alternate between starting from Kyneton, Woodend and Gisborne. Generally there will be 2 ride options available, a shorter, easier paced ride, and a longer, slightly harder and faster paced ride. The rides will always include a coffee stop, and will be relaxed and social in nature! We encourage all members to attend, regardless of riding ability or fitness level.

This week (Sunday 13th), the ride will be starting from Woodend Railway Station. We’ll meet in the car park (the larger one, furthest away from the centre of Woodend) at 8:50am, with the ride leaving at 9am.

The route will take us along Ashbourne Road to Trentham, where we’ll stop for coffee and cake. The shorter ride will return to Woodend (via Ashbourne road again), while the longer ride will go back to Woodend via Lauriston Reservoir.

We hope to see as many members there as possible!
