All club rides start from the same location, at Decathlon, Newmarket Mall (cnr Vootrekker Road & Ring Road East, Alberton).
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:
|01-Sep to 30-Apr||01-May to 31-Aug|
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.
Below is the plan for the Early Bird rides for Spring/Summer ride times:

Early Bird routes have been added (above). We are working on adding a list of routes, together with the calendar. Route profiles, distances, elevation gain and perceived difficulty will be listed.
