PPA Weekly Social Rides

All groups are free of charge and open to everyone including non-members. There are three group rides to choose from; Short Ride, Intermediate Group and Experienced Group. Join the Whatsapp groups below to stay updated with ride details.

SHORT RIDE:

Short route ride will take place every Saturday from Mowbray. Rides will take place every Saturday from Mowbray. This group has been created specifically to give new comers the opportunity to gain confidence when riding on the road while improving their bike handling skills. That said, anyone is welcome to join. Safety is top of mind and thus the group ride is structured and the pace is strictly controlled by a ride captain. For some, this group may be just a stepping stone and so as you get stronger you have the choice to leave the group and join one of PPA’s more experienced groups. You are also most welcome to stay.

WHEN: Every Saturday
