Great Group Rides
Join fellow RACV Great Victorian Bike riders on a group ride for fun and fitness!
The RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride gives riders a chance to make new friends in a fun and friendly community environment. These group rides give you the chance to meet new riders, do some training and have fun as well!
Here are some regular group rides taking place:
WARBY Prep Rides
Our wonderful team of WARBYs will again be running prep rides for first-time riders in the lead up to the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride 2013.
WARBY Prep Rides are approximately 60km along, are mostly done on recreational trails and include a variety of riding challenges, including hills. It's a great opportunity for Riders new to the RACV Great Vic to meet fellow riders fand speak with our WARBYs team about what you can expect at the event.
The WARBY prep riders are free to join for all first-time riders, though you must contact us to register prior to each ride.
The dates for the WARBY prep rides this year are:
- Sun 4 August: Federation Square to Wattle Park along Gardiners Creek Path, return via Koornung Creek Path and Yarra/Capital City Trail
- Sat 7 September: Federation Square to Westerfolds Park and return along the Yarra/Capital City Trail
- Sat 21 September - Wodondga: Meet at Willow Park (Pearce Street), Wodonga - 60km loop out to Hume Weir and Lavington. (note: there is limited opportunity to purchase food along the route, so please bring your own lunch, snacks and water)
- Sat 5 October: Southern Cross to the Ring Road along Moonee Ponds Creek Path, return via Merri Creek Path and Capital City Trail
All rides start at 9.30am sharp, however, participants are asked to arrive by 9.15am for a pre-ride briefing.
The Tenax Ride group claims to be the friendliest bunch ride ever and their many riders certainly will attest to that! With regular road rides alternating between Beach Road and other locations around Melbourne, the Tenax Ride is a perfect ride for entry level road riders, but with average speeds of 25km/h and above it maybe a challenge for those new to riding. If you are looking to improve your fitness and speed on the bike the Tenax Ride is for you!
