G'day

How about linking to the individual Club's calendars? You can easily edit your opening post.

They do the occasional rides although being the Historic Cyclists that they are those sorts of things are more for the young whippersnappers.

There are a lot of social groups around, when I occasionally ran some rides for the Freo BUG we'd get some of the retiree groups turn up, they'd already had some sort of regular ride going, keen as hell. Then there's groups like the Peel Cycling Club, they have a social group as well as roadracing ( http://www.pdcc.asn.au/ ) and you'll see them around Rockingham. The racing clubs, such as Melville-Fremantle, also run regular training rides and some of the groups that you'll see out of the paths are from footy clubs, health clubs, even schools. One of the SOR primary schools is pretty active in bike education and runs rides for the kids, looks at bike design, all that. But then in SA/VIC they run the Pedal Prix series for schools ( http://www.pedalprix.com.au/news.php ) and Wonthaggai HPV Gran Prix ( http://www.wonthaggisc.vic.edu.au/hpv/ ) whereas in Perth we seem to mainly teach our kids the merits of high-powered cars, joy rides and roadrage. Ah, Perth traffic. At least we have good cycleways for a bit of relaxing away.

G'day

I don't think so. WAMBA is the umbrella organisation as I understand it, whereas Perth Mountain Bike Club is just a club.

The closest we unicyclists in Perth have outside of university juggling clubs to a unicycling club in Perth - the Perth Unicyclists forum at http://forum.perthunicycle.com/index.php?board=1.0

For those who want to ride aorund the river/cbd/parks with other unicyclists, or need some help getting onto a uni, or just want to have a try, post your need on the forum and we will make it happen.

Rottnest Island........Locals ride, monday to saturday mornings...(note mostly only on fine days without rain)

there is very few of us (mostly me with my mate)
leave the 3 pot plants (near the lodge in the settlement bus stop cross roads) about 6.15am-6.30am
we do a stright sprint ride through the center to west end 20to18 min ride
some times up the light house or oliver hill on the way out or back.

short break at west end..5 mins then sprint back though the center, back about 7ish

as there is rarely any 1 who comes with us we suit our selves depending on the wind etc
we do take different routes southern and northern sides to please our selves

if ya keen for a ride on ya holidays welcome to ride out with us
email me if ya comming over to check if our start times change as our work times change according to summer or winter season.
[email protected]
cheers,
brad.

Locals ride...(note mostly only fine days no rain)
Smiles and Pace...

Is there any clubs that cater for us older (early 50's) folks that don't have a road bike? the wife and I have recently taken up riding again after a 30 year spell :).
We purchased a couple of Trek Mountain Bikes and have been riding for around 2 mths. and have done approx 900k's. But I just can't seem to find a club that caters for those of us that have mountain bikes, the minute you mention mountain bikes with knobbly's they don't want to know. We are too young for the over 55's and CFP didn't really want to know.

We average 20kph and ride to enjoy it, if we want to go any faster we take the car :D

Any info would be appreciated
