Saturday Club Ride

The Saturday Club Ride is held, every Saturday with the regular meeting point of Dome Currambine at 0650hrs. We ride a regular rotation of routes, with the lengths varying from 35 to 55kms depending on the group. With a diverse group of members and large group numbers, we form into different groups before starting. We endeavour to have a Ride Captain in each group, to help with communication within the group, and to make sure we go the right way.

NBCC Club Ride Groups

All groups, bar Group 1 are “No Drop” rides. If a member is struggling with the pace, they’re advised to drop off the group, and join the trailing group behind. We ask that this is communicated with the nominated Ride Captain for that group. If a puncture occurs during the ride, again, the whole group is to stop. We recommend new riders to join a Transition Group to get familiar with riding in a bunch and on the open roads.
