cycle4life rockhampton: is an informal, mixed social cycling group. The group is very friendly and welcomes new men and women. The group goals are to be fit and to have fun!
schedule: our routine weekly schedule is shown in the table below. Other ad-hoc rides occur sometimes (eg on Public Holidays) and are socialized in the group and published on the calendar. Times change slightly for Summer and Winter, so check this site before riding or get on our mailing list.
saturday rides: are designed to suit a range of needs, with most rides including a shorter or slower option. For example, on Saturday we sometimes split the group. The intent is to arrive back to the cafe at the same time! Every Saturday we choose a different ride. We generally work this out the month before, and start with our shortest ride on the first weekend and build up to a long ride at the end of the month. The ride is usually between 40km and 60km, but sometimes longer depending on whether people are preparing for an event, or just want a challenge. All of our rides are mapped on-line on the routes page.
events: from time to time some of us challenge ourselves by participating in local, state or national cycling community events. The calendar is chosen by the group to help us all meet these fitness goals.
email list: to get on our list, join the google group cycle4life by sending an email to subscribe. If you are on the list you will normally get a reminder for the Saturday ride during the week before. The emails are also posted via the Google Calendar.
the fine print: Here are some links to recommended Bicycle organisations that have insurance cover included in their membership at a very reasonable cost.
