Social

Whether it be a casual cafe cruise, a breakfast bunch and beyond, or venturing into the hills for some elevation, NBCC has rides to suit everyone. With the Club Ride being held every Saturday morning, this leaves the rest of the week open for a great variety of rides. Some regulars include:

Tuesday Swan Valley Ride

The group meets on the coast in the morning, at the corner of Shenton Ave and Ocean Reef Rd, before venturing east to Perth’s famous Swan Valley Region. With numerous cafes in the valley to choose from, the group regularly changes up the destination, and the route to get there. This is a very welcoming regular bunch of riders, happy to accommodate to all levels of ability. The group sticks together for safety in numbers, as it’s all about the coffee. Jump on the Facebook Social Group for up to date departure times each week.

Wednesday Morning Hill Repeats

Ride and shine! Using Quinns Road, in Quinns Rocks, this is basically an up, down, turn around, repeat. This is a personal push, with other members motivating each other on, to reach personal goals. With riders meeting on the hill, anywhere from 0530hrs onwards, it’s all about doing what you can, and want to do. Everybody has their own goal and method as they carry out the session at their own pace. Once you’ve hit your target, or happily watched other dry reaching at the top as they push theirs, the Hardware Cafe’ just 500m away, gets brewing from 0630hrs. Hit up the Facebook Social Group to see who’s coming this week.

Thursday French Cafe Ride

Starting up in Mindarie generally after school drop off, with several pick up points along the way, this ride has one aim. To find a French Cafe’. With two regular options on the board, it may see a run down the coast and into the CBD, or another trip to the Swan Valley. Both routes offering something different. The chance to have a blast along the coast in sections before regrouping and heading up and over the hill towards the CBD. Or the fresh, flat and fast section of Gnangara rd to get the group rolling and working together, to either push into the wind, and have it push your average speed up. Either way, coffee and pastries is the target at the half way coffee stop. Know of a great French cafe, or want to join in on the action, head to our Facebook Social Group for up to date ride details.

Elevation
