Group rides gather from 830 am at the Connect Cycling Hub at the rear of Green Pastures Church (convenient to the entrance to Pure gym).

Following the ride briefing the four groups (beginners, intermediate 1 and 2 and advanced) then commence their rides at 9 am.

On alternating weeks the groups then meet together at the designated coffee stop at 1030 am.

Beginners generally ride approximately 10 miles.
