Every Saturday at 6.00am our group meets at the “All Abilities” car park ( Just east of the Pialba Seafront oval).We have 7 group rides organised for all levels of cyclists.

This weekly event is our most popular and is supported by up to 120 cyclists each week with many newcomers joining our rides for the first time.

If you have a bike that is roadworthy and you are feeling positive and energetic then please come and experience this enjoyable group ride. We feel confident that once you have participated you will want to return every week.

Our group rides range from 20kms to 50kms and last for up to 1.5 hours. Thereafter we all head back to the coffee shop where we share our ride experiences, tell tall stories, have a great laugh and make many new friends.
