All club rides start from the same location, at Decathlon, Newmarket Mall (cnr Vootrekker Road & Ring Road East, Alberton).

Start times

The club has organised rides on a Saturday, Sunday and most public holidays, and vary according to the time of year, as well as each day. During the week, we have 2-3 groups training in the early morning before work:

Day “Summer” “Winter”
01-Sep to 30-Apr 01-May to 31-Aug
Tuesday 4:30 4:30
Thursday 4:30 4:30
Early Bird 5:00 5:30
Saturday 6:15 6:45
Sunday 6:15 6:45
Public holiday 6:15 6:45

 


There are now 2x Early Bird rides, a medium/fast group (32-34Km) and a slow/medium group (22Km). Both start and finish at Merv’s Hardware, in time for the normal club ride start time. This is ideal to get extra distance in before the club ride. Also works well if you have other plans for a Saturday, and can’t complete the club ride.
