Wednesday social ride – grade EXX (be prepared for hills), sometimes EX (flatter) – leaves Maribyrnong Ave car park opp Diamantina Cres, KALEEN, just down from the Caltex Service Station. Moderately-paced rides of up to 40 km from Kaleen to destinations usually in the greater Belconnen-Gungahlin-Hall area and return (occasionally we may head towards central Canberra or southwards), with a leisurely café stop. Occasionally, a different destination, e g, a cultural event, and return to Kaleen, sometimes more than 40 km. Travel speed 18-22 km/h. We have waypoint markers and a tail-ender to assist if your travel speed is at the lower end of the range. Meet 8.45am for 9.00am departure (non-daylight saving months) & 8.15am for 8.30am start (daylight saving months).

Wednesday excursion ride (second Wednesday of the month) – grade MXX or occasionally MX, only rarely EXX or EX – leaves Maribyrnong Ave car park opposite Diamantina Cres, KALEEN. On the second Wednesday of the month, an excursion replaces the social ride from Kaleen, on a more challenging ride further afield, over a distance of between 40 and 60 km (sometimes more, e g, if we ride to Queanbeyan), with a leisurely café stop. Travel speed about 22 km/h. We have waypoint markers and a tail-ender to assist. Meet 8.45am for 9.00am departure (non-daylight saving months) & 8.15am for 8.30am start (daylight saving months).

Please be sure to wear a Standards-approved helmet and to bring water, spare tyre tubes and a pump.

Rarely, if an accredited ride leader is not available to lead a ride, those gathering at the starting point can organize a ride of their choice, but the ride will not be a programmed Pedal Power ride.

Pedal Power Terms and conditions apply.
