Find a cycling group

Riding in company is a great thing to do too.

  • The riding often feels easier and many people enjoy the company and camaraderie.

  • For some reason most bike riders are good sorts and fun to be with. It might have something to with being out in the fresh air, getting a bit of easy exercise and moving around under your own steam. Plus the coffee and cake stops.

  • Riding with a group means you don’t have to worry about working out where to ride and a lot of people like the ‘structure’ a regular riding group provides.

  • Joining a local bike group is a great way to get ‘on yer bike’. There are a lot of local bike groups for older riders in Melbourne and across Victoria. They are friendly and welcoming.

The bike groups and organisations listed below run bike rides for the over 50s and senior riders.
