  • Sunday of the Labour Day Long Weekend - Gears and Beers Rides
  • Second Sunday of October - Canola Canter

Please be there a few minutes earlier than the nominated time so that you’re there to hear the Ride Leader’s briefing so that you know where to go on the ride and where to go afterwards.

The Fat Tyred Ride


The Fat Tyred Ride is a ride that requires a bike with fat tyres. Held mainly on tracks and cycleways there is little interaction with traffic however some of the terrain requires that you use a bike with suitable tyres. A mountain bike is ideal however a hybrid or touring bike with fat tyres would do the job but it’s definitely not a ride to take a road bike on.

The ride is held on the first Sunday of the month.

The ride leaves from the Wagga Beach at the same time as the regular Sunday Ride. Be there a bit earlier to ensure you are ready to roll at the nominated time.

Following are some samples of the various rides undertaken for the Fat Tyred Ride.

The Long Ride


The Long Ride is a road ride of about 100 km. There are a number of loop rides available so it’s a good way to get out and about the local area. This ride is generally held on the second Sunday of the month.

The starting venue and time varies from month to month. Call Emilie Graham, on 0409 317 395 for information about this ride.

Following are some samples of the various rides undertaken for the Long Ride.

Hotter Months

The ride leaves from the Lake Albert Shared Pathway, on Lakeside Drive just down from the Lake Albert Road corner.
Please note: Because of the unpredictable nature of the weather in the mornings in early Autumn and Spring the start times may vary in March and October.
In March it could be a later start and in October an earlier start than those listed above.

The TLFTR is named as such because the ladies were the first to organise the ride but it is open to all riders. You will need a mountain bike or a hybrid bike as the course chosen is often off road on bike trails/tracks and gravel roads. The ride lasts for approximately 2 hours.
A finish location is nominated before the ride starts and is usually a suitable location for refreshments and conversation.

Friday Road Ride

The Friday Road Ride leaves from the corner of Main Street and Lake Street in Lake Albert, opposite the bus stop.
The ride is an 'out and back' course travelling out to and along Big Springs Road and return. All riders generally organise the timing of their ride to be back for morning tea after 2 hours of cycling.
Please note: this ride has staggered start times to cater for both fast and slower riders. The earlier time is more suitable for riders that average up to 25 km/h and the later time is more suitable for riders that like to average over 25 km/h.

A suitable venue for morning tea will be selected by group mutual agreement.
