    Hi all,

    I am new to riding and I am looking for a riding bunch in Canberra on the weekends. I just ride for fun but I am sick of riding by myself. I love going for a good long ride and then having breakfast and a coffee.

    If anybody is interested please drop me a line.

    Hi,

    Sounds like you might enjoy riding with the ACT Veterans Cycling Club. Its a racing club for women over 30 and men over 35 but they do a regular Sunday morning training ride that finnishes in town at a cafe. You will find good comradre within the club.

    There is also Pedal Power which is a recreational cycling group.

    Regards, Anthony

    Hi there,
    I used to go on quite a few pedalpower rides. The rides are mostly on Sunday mornings, and there is a "slow" and "fast" group normally. In general people of similar speed, riding abilities, tend to form groups along the ride.

    How fast do I have to be to join in on a act vets club weekend ride?

    Just getting back into riding after some back and hip problems.

    Hi thomas,

    The Vets ride would be at least as fast as the fast Pedal Power ride. It does vary but they aim to ride along at 28-30 kmh on the flat.

    Regards, Anthony
