 Description

Current ability to ride a bike and previous riding experience are essential.
Individual riders must be responsible for their own bike maintenance during rides.  U3A insurance does not cover bicycle riders, therefore each rider is responsible for their own safety.   We recommend all cyclists join Bicycle Network – Victoria, which includes insurance cover as part of your membership.   Concession membership is about $100.00 per year.    Please ensure you have your name and emergency contact details on your person for each ride.

Rides are on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm approximately. We generally meet at Fairfield Boathouse car park, Darebin Parklands car park or other locations marked on the map below.   The rides are along bike paths and bike lanes with a few connecting roads, and a distance of between about 20 – 30 km per ride.  Depending on distances, we may need to travel by train to or from Fairfield.   Most rides include a coffee stop, and generally we will return to Fairfield by about 1:00 pm.
