Killer Loop, Led by Nick (not Nic!)

Midland Station Midland Stn, Midland, WA, Australia

  Not to be outdone by his nemesis Scott, Nick has not just waited to see that fine weather is in the forecast before submitting his ride description - he has actually waited until mere moments before the ride starts.  If your reactions are quick enough, you may actually make it to the start location [...] → Continue Reading Killer Loop, Led by Nick (not Nic!)

Swanning it to The Bayside Kitchen, led by Randell

Britannia Reserve Britannia Road Reserve, Leederville, WA, Australia

  The ever-reliable Randell has stepped in to take over from Greg, who was originally slated to lead this ride but has been forced to withdraw due to a broken foot.  No longer a ride of mystery, it has morphed into a ride of (mostly) certainty - we just don't know how far he intends [...] → Continue Reading Swanning it to The Bayside Kitchen, led by Randell

South of the River Loop

Raffles Hotel 70-72 Canning Beach Rd, Applecross, Australia

Britannia Reserve Britannia Road Reserve, Leederville, WA, Australia

Midland Station Midland Stn, Midland, WA, Australia
