Upcoming Further Horizons rides:
Contact: Jenny Cleaver for more information
Saturday 27th May
Meet at 8:15 for an 8.30 ride start from MacDermott Place by Lake Ginninderra, near Coulter Drive, Belconnen. There is plenty of parking and toilets, so we will meet near-ish to the toilet block. We will be riding around Lake Ginninderra with a loop off to Gungahin Lake and around Yarrabi Ponds. Coffee will be at Da Nunzio’s cafe near Yarrabi Ponds. The ride is almost exactly 30km and there are no hills to talk about. The whole ride is on bike paths, too.
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.
