Upcoming Further Horizons rides:


Contact: Jenny Cleaver for more information

Saturday 18th August

Meet at The Rock Garden car park adjacent to the bike path and opposite the entrance to the Arboretum, Yarramundi Reach off Lady Denman Dr at 8.15 for an 8.30am start.

We will follow the path heading west and along the Molonglo valley and on to Weston. No stopping here this week!  Instead, we follow Hindmarsh drive and  under the road to the top of Chifley then a few ups and downs on the way to Melrose Drive.

Coffee stop at Southlands Mawson hopefully at the Continental Bakery if not too busy. Return via Curtin, the Mint and Yarralumla and following the west basin path back to the start. A fairly easy ride with some small hills to get the heart rate up. About 30kms.

General Information

Further Horizons is a cycling group aiming at graduates of New Horizons, to keep them riding in a supportive and non-competitive atmosphere.
We generally ride 30 - 40km at an average speed of 15 - 19km/hr, and mostly on cycle paths or quiet roads. We continue the New Horizons behaviours by continuing to ride on Saturday mornings, calling out about approaching riders/pedestrians or problems to the others in the group, and we have a clear leader and tail to keep the group together.
Each week has a new leader and a different route, allowing participants to explore parts of Canberra that they wouldn't otherwise ride, and to share routes that they know and love. Participants are not limited to New Horizons graduates, but people interested in joining should understand that we travel as a group, with frequent stops, and with the emphasis on socialising and having fun.

Starting Place & Time

The starting place and time may be different each week so check the top of this page for information on the next ride.
