We meet at the shop every Sunday morning at 6:50 am, and depart at 7:00am rain, hail or shine. The ride is a challenging 42km loop which takes in Mascoma Hills, Essendon Airport, back of Melbourne Airport and finishes off for post ride coffees in Ascot Vale. It's a no drop shop ride, with a few regular stops, so don't be shy, dust off that bike, and Let's Ride!
