Riding is central to the Cycle Club experience. We are lucky in Sydney to have some of the most spectacular rides and scenery right on our doorstep. We have a number of Club Rides that leave the Cycle Club every week, with different route options so you can experience the best that Sydney has to offer.
If you would like to join any of our rides for the first time, then we recommend dropping by the Cycle Club or telephoning us to discuss further so we can be sure to place you in the correct ride/group for your safety and enjoyment.
Wednesday Morning Club Rides
The Wednesday Club Rides covers between 30-40km. Due to the popularity of these rides we split the group into four bunches for safety and to cater for different abilities.
Meet at the Cycle Club from 5:45am for a quick espresso; then roll at 6:00am sharp. As well as Cycle Club Staff we have a number of experienced ride leaders to help oversee the rides. Riders return to the Cycle Club for about 7:00-7:20 for Coffee and breakfast.
To help you decide which bunch to roll with here is a quick guide:
Fast Lapa – This is a swift pace averaging 26-28km/h as a guide. The route usually takes a direct line down to La Perouse with a few different routes on the way back.
Intermediate Lapa – This is a steadier-paced Lapa averaging 25km/h as a guide. Usually following the first group and getting back to the club a few minutes later.
Recovery Lapa – As the name suggests this is a sociable-paced ride. The purpose of this ride is to move the legs and experience the beauty of the early morning. It is a steadier ride averaging around 20-23km/h as a guide. This is the ideal ride for those not used to riding in a group and/or new to road riding.
Fast Hills & Beaches – This is a fast-paced drop ride with some unexpected twists and turns. Averaging 26-30km/h as a guide.
Intermediate Hills & Beaches – A moderately paced ride following the Fast Hills and Beaches, it’s a no-drop ride with an average pace of 25km/h as a guide and a great step up from the Recovery Lapa.
If you are unsure of which ride to join then please speak to our Cycle Club Staff or Ride Leaders, or call us to discuss further.
Friday Women’s Club Ride
Join us on Fridays 5.45 am for a friendly ride out to La Perouse. This ride is led by the Rapha women and is a great step up from the Wednesday recovery ride in a supportive environment. Averaging around 28km/h, gentlemen, partners and friends are all welcome.
