Our weekly open and MC Velo rides are a mix of routes, each bringing a different flavour - distances, climbing, recovery, to even some more challenging combinations and terrains.
There is something nice about having familiar routes and meeting times each day of the week, which people can rely upon and plan around their own weekly schedule. But we are also excited to make some changes to our weekly ride schedule to bring variety and new challenges, and adjust for the changing light in the morning.
Our current weekly schedule of rides is now:
Monday: Chat Laps recovery ride, for MC Velo members. A casual recovery ride around Centennial Park ~30kms followed by coffee.
Tuesday: LapaTainers, open to all. A medium-paced ride, 35kms 245^m to La Perouse and Breakwall, followed by coffee at MC Clubhouse. This ride is open-to-all and is 100% no-drop. Meeting at 06:00 at Centennial Park Horse Gates, rolling at 06:15.
Wednesday: The MC Women's Ride, open to all women. Runs fortnightly.
Thursday: Hills & Lifeguards, for MC Velo members. Some climbing in the Eastern Beaches over 30-35kms 450^m.
Friday: Beaches, for MC Velo members. A sunrise glimpse of Clovelly, Coogee, Maroubra, La Perouse, and Malabar for 38kms 400^m.
Saturday: The MC Classic, open to all. The one and only MC Classic! The weekend starts with the MC Classic, a ride for everyone. The MC Classic operates in different groups depending on size and pace: Classic Social Elite: 35-40km at 25-30kmph; Classic Tempo: 35-40km at 28-32kmph; Classic Super Social: 35-40km at 20-25kmph.
Meeting at 0615 for briefing and rolling from 0630. Meet at Label Baguette, Maroubra. Post ride coffee at MC Clubhouse, Kensington.
Sunday: Sunday Long, for MC Velo members. Distance and destination will vary each week from some of our favourite longer ride routes. Sunday also features some regular gravel outings. Rides are typically 90-130kms.
All MC rides are 100% no-drop. If you are in anyway unsure of your suitability for any of MC rides please reach out to the team at MC email@example.com, here to help!
Safety is our top priority on all MC rides. We'll be reminding everyone to ride within their abilities, obey traffic laws, and be courteous to other road users.
We hope you're as excited as we are about these changes to our schedule. We can't wait to hit the road with all of you and explore some new routes together.
