West Coast & Lakes, Led by Ian

Britannia Reserve Britannia Road Reserve, Leederville, WA, Australia

  'Coast & Lakes' has the ring of a nice flat ride for those who would shun the challenges  and rewards of the mountains.  But beware!  Ride leader Ian has managed to sneak a quick ascent of Reabold Hill into the route, hoping you wouldn't notice.  Although he may permit you to bypass on the [...] → Continue Reading West Coast & Lakes, Led by Ian

Mount up! It’s Time for Dinner in Parkerville with Cliff (and he’s OK)

Midland Station Midland Stn, Midland, WA, Australia

  Lights are compulsory, but a red uniform is optional on this ride into darkness with Cliff.  The hot chips at the Parkerville Tavern will more than compensate for the drain on your headlight battery.  There are plenty of other food options if the chips are not enough.

Beaches! Swamps! North with Mike

Britannia Reserve Britannia Road Reserve, Leederville, WA, Australia

  Another new face in the pantheon of ride leaders, many thanks to Mike Ryan for stepping up to the challenge.  A new route, and what's better - a new (to the CTA) café!  What varieties of muffin wait to be tasted?  What reaction will a horde of hungry smelly cyclists provoke?  Will there be [...] → Continue Reading Beaches!

Fast n Furious Swan Valley, Led by Scott

Guildford Station Guildford Stn, Guildford, Western Australia, Australia
