Familiarisation Rides

There will be 3 familiarisation rides. These are not compulsory but are valuable for meeting other riders, learning the conventions of riding in a peloton and deciding which group you may join during the event. We generally split into two groups, one going further and faster.

Saturday January 12  Thank you to the 32 people who attended.

Sunday February 3 Meet at Shelley Beach on Riverton Drive, Shelley near the toilet block between Beatrice and Corbel Sts. For those new to riding in a peloton, Barry Walton will present a very helpful information session beforehand (this was well attended in 2018). This will start at 7:30am. If you heard this last year or are an experienced Life Cycle rider, arrive in time for an 8am departure. From 8am we will ride in two groups again. The route will follow the river to Riverton Bridge and on to Nicholson Rd then Spencer Rd as far as Warton Rd for the slower group and Southern Rd for the faster group. Both will then reach Jandakot Rd and return via Beeliar Rd, Roe Hwy path and Willeri St. (44 or 51km approx). Coffee at Lo Quay. 

Saturday February 16 Meet at Narrows south end for an 8am departure. Ride south on the freeway bike path, turn onto Roe Hwy path, then onto Tonkin Hwy paths and coffee at Tomato Lake (Oats St, Kewdale) before returning to the Narrows (or dispersing for home. Approx 50km with the option of a slightly shorter ride for the slower group.
