Hi

Looking for info on Gold Coast bunches. Staying pretty much at Cavill Ave. Looking for a couple of hours a day most days. Am from out of town so general direction to meet point would be great. Fast, slow, big or small, dont mind. Thx.

Some group starts at Burleigh carpark at 5:45 (i think) and some at the firestation at Markeri st. Mermaid Waters at 5:45.
There's always anyone going along the esplanade to the spit.
Your best bet would be to call the bike shops.

Avanti Plus Robina do a Saturday ride. BikeForce Oxenford also do multiple rides during the week.

Been out with the Bikeforce guys and will continue to do so as of next week as my son's last AFL game is this Saturday...WOOOOHOOOO!! Can't do them unless he played on a Friday night.

Good bunch at the Oxenford branch and if you pass your details onto them, you will get an SMS with the details for the rides for the week.

This week SMS:
Rides - Mon 5:30am South via Montrey Keys - Wed 5am fast to Beachmont no stopping no regroups and 5:30am south via Pac Pines - Fri Reverse Loop.


On Friday arvo I will get another one which details the Saturday rides. Speaking with one of the guys the other day, they did Binna Burra last Saturday (their advanced group) and out of 22, 10 made it to Binna Burra and 12 got to Beachmont. The advanced normally kicks off at 6:00am on Saturday and the people rest start at around 6:30 and they have some challenging routes around North Goldie and sometimes venture to the Spit..etc

I believe they are going to try and do Beachmont/Binna Burra rides at least once a month from now on too from what I was told. Something for me anyway to aim for...

Hope that helps

I believe this Saturday morning (AT) 5:30am it will be a climb to Beachmont (not sure if it is Beachmont or Lower Beachmont) from the Bikeforce Oxenford shop.

Normal ride will take off at 6:00am.

Waza at 6:30 tomorrow morning the guys are going to the spit. Go on that ride.

Or come with us on the early ride. You don't have to go to Binna Burra... just go as far as you can.

5:40 for the Binna Buraa group (1st group) and 6:00am for the faster group to catch group 1 (I will be in the first group)

Being my first hill ride, will try for Binna Burra, however I hear it is one tough hill that final bit... but I am going to push for Beachmont.

Meeting place is the Oxenford Bikeforce shop. Coffee after the ride so bring $2.50

Go in the shop and get yourself added to the SMS list. I get one each week and then one on Friday with the Saturday ride information

Then if there is a public holiday like last Friday then they did an extra ride.
