Important Notes

Bunch Safety

  • Obey traffic signals – reds lights
  • Ride inside the yellow line
  • Single file on narrow roads
  • Point out objects in the road
  • It is dark and cold in the mornings – use lights and dress warm


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 – our rides leave at 6.30am

Visitors are always welcome.
Saturday rides are slower and easier so beginners are welcome.
Sundays are not for the fainthearted or unfit!

We also host informal rides on Fridays, at 08h30, from the same venue.
