The MTB Ride

      What: The monthly off-road ride where a MTB bike is essential. With
                 Pomingalarna Park on the city’s outskirts fantastic off-road riding
                 is only minutes away.
      When: Saturday 16th May 2015 at 1:30 PM.
      Where: Wagga City Golf Club.
      Contact: Ray Loiterton on 0429 402 240.

The Ride of Silence

      What: On 20th May, 2015 at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence (RoS) will begin in
                 North America and roll across the globe. Sites in the southern
                 hemisphere will complete their RoS on 23rd May.
                 Cyclists will take to the road in a silent procession to honor riders
                 who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways.
                 Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with
                 motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights,
                 and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
                 The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no
                 faster than 20km/h, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road
                 and remain silent during the ride. There are no sponsors and no
                 registration fees. The ride aims to raise the awareness of
                 motorists, police, city officials and the general public that
                 cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also
                 a chance to show respect for, and honor, the lives of those who
                 have been killed or injured.
      More information: See the RoS
      website.
      When: Saturday 23rd May 2015 at 10:00 AM.
      Where: Wagga Wagga Railway Station.
      Contact: Ray Stenhouse on 0418 400 455.

The Fat Tyred Ride

      What: The monthly off-road ride where a MTB bike is great but any bike
                 with fatter tyres is the go. It’s not a ride for a road bike but
                 hybrids, tourers and of course MTBs will handle the tracks and
                 trails around Wagga Wagga.
      When: Sunday 7th June 2015 at 1:00 PM.
      Where: Wagga Beach, Johnston Street, Wagga Wagga.
      Contact: David Neil on 02 6926 2778.

The Long Ride

      What: This is an opportunity for those that want to ride about 100km to
                 get out and about with like-minded individuals rather than going
                 on their own. A suitable place for refueling along the way is
                 chosen to ensure that the social aspect isn’t forgotten.
      When: Sunday 14th June 2015
      Contact: Ray Loiterton on 0429 402 240 for details of rendezvous and time.

Thanks for visiting.
