Welcome to the Lane CoVelo Cycling Club.
We are a group of cyclists who meet every Saturday morning in Lane Cove Plaza (125 Longueville Road Rd) at 6:30am. Our rides are primarily social in nature.
Ride groups are at different speeds and distances.
Group Distance Flat Pace 5% Climb Pace Normal Return Time
A Group 80km+ 30km/hr 16km/hr 10:00 AM
B1 Group 70km+ 28km/hr 15km/hr 9:30 AM
B2 Group 60km+ 26km/hr 14km/hr 10:00 AM
C Group 40km+ 24km/hr 12km/hr 9:00 AM
It is more important that you are able to ride at the pace on the flats in a group than you able to do the pace on the hills, the groups typically splinter on the hills, but regroup at the top. Riders are expected to be self sufficient on the bike, so please carry a spare tube, pump and some basic tools. The group will stop for mechanicals, but please ensure that your bike is in good mechanical repair.
A small note re C Group. It is a small group and may not have a ride leader, or perhaps any rider on occasion. So please ensure you have a backup plan, e.g. an alternate solo ride planned or if capable, join B2.
Upcoming rides can be found on TeamApp. You will need to register for each ride on TeamApp. Download TeamApp to your phone (or use the web) and register with Lane Covelo, and then RSVP to the ride event.
