Ride Calendar

When riding with others, during COVID, Cycling Australia recommends that common sense prevails.

  • Ride as least 1.5m apart
  • When stopped maintain distance from others
  • If stopping for refreshments keep equipment etc. off tables etc.

We’ll keep you updated as new information comes to hand.

Our regular cafes, Barwon Edge and Cafe Zoo are both still open. Please follow the guidance of cafe staff for seating limits etc.

NOTE:  Prospective riders for Cycling Geelong rides (other than the Saturday River circuit) should contact the ride leader the day before the ride.  Ride leader details are in the Members Area of the website.  Non-members who wish to ride should make contact through Dave Simpson, the ride coordinator. (This ensures the ride leader knows how many riders are attending, and can let riders know if there are changes in the ride.)

* Ride difficulty criteria

Easy – Rides to 40km, easy terrain with few hills, slow – medium pace (on bike average of around 15 to 18kph) Paths or quiet roads. 

Medium – Rides to 70km, with easy terrain, some hills, pace medium – on bike average around 18-20+kph. 

Hard – Rides of 65+ km.  These rides may include steeper hills, and may have a medium – fast pace (20- 25+kph on bike average) and are usually long. 

All Cycling Geelong rides include a refreshment break.
