Saturday Group Ride schedule
COVID-19 Update. Saturday rides are currently suspended due to the difficulty in meeting up in numbers, even if riders only ride in groups of 6. Please use the members Facebook page to self organise group rides/routes/meet up spots.
The routes follow a 12 week rotation – imaginatively called BM1, BM2…BM12 – and are generally between 80-100 kilometres in length. Every fourth week (BM4, BM8, BM12), there is a longer ride of about 120 kilometres for those who have the time, the fitness and an understanding family. You will need to be a competent group rider to take part in any of the Saturday rides.
All Saturday rides are for members only.
GPS files are all available via the links below so please download them beforehand so that you are in a position to ride at the front of the group and provide navigation if need be.
