Bunch Safety

Single file on narrow roads

Point out objects in the road

Bunch Etiquette

Blow your nose at the back of the bunch

Don’t attack – training rides are just that – training rides

Don’t half bike

Be punctual

Saturdays – rides are slower and easier so beginners are welcome. We try and cater for a long and short group depending on the turn-outs. 

Sundays – rides are usually more challenging i.e. 30+ km/hr pace. We however try and cater for multiple groups with separate capabilities, depending on the turn-outs on the day.
