Social Rides

The Gold Coast Cycling Club is a racing club which holds racing every fortnight (Sunday) however the beauty of living on the Gold Coast is that you can usually find a group to ride with most days of the week but those riders with a race licence usually dedicate a Saturday afternoon and a Sunday morning to racing.

The Bayview training group is a cycling community devoted to providing safe, organised training rides which adhere to Best Practice. They emphasise maximum respect to motorists at all times and also adhere to the road rules at all times.

The rides emanate in different directions each day, always returning to the same location in front of the wonderful Caffene Break Cafe. Management of the Cafe are very supportive of the local cycling community and make all riders feel very welcome.
