Wednesday Social Rides

General Information

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.  For further information, see the Pedal Power events calendar.

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.  For further information, see the Pedal Power events calendar.
