Upcoming Further Horizons rides:
Contact: Jenny Cleaver for more information
Saturday 21st October
Meet at the Dickson Pool carpark, off Cowper St Dickson, at 8.15 for an 8.30 start. We will ride along the green belt through Kaleen, then turn at William Slim Dr to head towards Gungahlin. Around the back of the Ponds and we shall have coffee at Forde shops. Back along Horse Park Dr, turn into Harrison and Franklin to Gungahlin Dr and it’s fairly direct from there back to Dickson. All on cycle paths with little in the way of hills (apart from the Forde shops bit). About 33 km.
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.
