Randwick Botany Cycling Club

Located in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. Everyone is welcome to join our Friday Coffee Ride!

Training Rides

RBCC training rides are available  nearly every morning and afternoon of the week.

Morning-riders

See chart and links below for details.

Meeting place    : Randwick Gates – Centennial Park. (Darley Rd Roundabout)

 

 

Please note that rides proceeding to La Perouse will now do so via Doncaster Avenue.  Because of the Light Rail works in Anzac Parade, the club rides will no longer proceed south via Anzac Parade but rather will proceed south in Doncaster Avenue all the way to Gardeners Road, at which point we will turn left, enter the Kingsford roundabout and then exit to Anzac Parade and continue south past Souths Juniors to La Perouse.   A similar diversion will occur on the reverse trip where applicable.

Support your club on club training rides and wear your club uniform.  See why in ‘notes’ at bottom.

Notes:

RBCC Training ride starting point

RBCC Training ride starting point

  • The Randwick gates at Centennial Park are the gates closest to Randwick Racecourse – at the roundabout and just north of Randwick Technical College.
  • 6.00am start is in darkness so you will need appropriate lighting on your bike.
  • 6.00am calls for warm gear so you’ll need arm and leg warmers and a wind vest or other appropriate warm clothing.
  • Junior riders to seek approval from Junior Sub Committee before undergoing road training rides.
  • Training can be dangerous at times and you do so at your own risk. These rides are organised by the Randwick Botany Cycling Club and hence sanctioned by Cycling Australia and covered by CA insurance. Non members will not be allowed to participate unless by invitation. Please ensure that you wear your club uniform as the bunch will not stop and wait for persons having punctures or mechanicals unless identified as an RBCC member.
  • Your Cycling NSW license and affiliation only covers Cycling Australia sanctioned activities including racing and club organised training rides. It is therefore suggested that if you intend to train on unauthorized rides (The Coluzzi ride for example) that you ensure that you have adequate personal insurances in place in case of an accident. You are covered on Club organised training rides. We therefore advise that you train on club organised training rides.
