We are an ad hoc, disparate social group of mainly retired people from Newcastle, N.S.W, who enjoy MTB cross country riding. We also have regular bike path/road rides.Our ages range from 45 to 70 plus.  
NB. We are a group that enjoy bicycle riding without any leaders. Rides are decided by those attending and we look out for each other. The decision to ride rests with each rider alone as it can be hazardous.

Our regular MTB rides are as follows: 

  • Every Monday and Friday we do an MTB ride from a place that is designated by those at the previous MTB ride.  The locations can be any where from Glenrock State Recreation Area, Jesmond Park, Seahampton, Swansea or Edgeworth Macca's, Ourimbah, Holmesville Oval, Awaba Mountain Park and Cooranbong.  Distances can range from 20 to 60km and can be very hilly.

Our regular bike path/road rides are as follows:

  • Every Sunday meet at Jesmond roundabout at 8 am for a road ride to Honeysuckle for coffee.  Then on to Nobby's and disperse.  
  • Every Wednesday meet near Hunter Stadium on the western side of Turton Road on the corner of the bike path ready to ride at 8:30am for a ride out along the bike path past Wests, Jesmond Park and through the University.  Then through Mayfield and Tighes Hill to Throsby Creek bike path, along Honeysuckle to Nobby's for coffee. Its about 40Km. Here is a link to a map of the ride:
  • Every Friday Kenny's road/bike path ride starting at 8am is usually from the Burwood Rd crossing on the Fernleigh Track out to a destination determined by those present with a coffee stop at Whitebridge Café, Awaba House or some other place.
