Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

We have had some great ideas for revamping the Saturday rides, unfortunately no one has put their hand up to be ride leaders.  Without ride leaders we cannot implement any changes.  This applies for our Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday regular rides.   If you are a regular rider on any of these days, please consider being a ride leader.

Having said that, for the next 4 weeks there will be a group ride leaving from Guildford Train Station at 6am.  See Below for details.

The Rottnest Channel swim is on this weekend and there is a group heading down to Cottesloe to witness the spectacular start of this iconic event. The group will be leaving from Scarborough to Cottesloe and returning to Scarborough via Rebold .  More details will be posted on our Facebook page.


The kids Tryathlon is on this Sunday.  It is not too late to register.  It is in the indoor pool at Craigie Leisure Centre and on closed roads so you children can try a triathlon in a really safe and fun environment.  You can sign up HERE.
