When do we ride?

Tandem riders regularly join the following kinds of rides, depending on the interests and abilities of each cyclist:

  • Saturday or Sunday morning Pedal Power social rides.
  • FIT Friday morning training rides
  • Sunday ”Wanderers” road rides with Pedal Power.  There are generally three options: a short option of 50-70km, another of 70-90km and a fast group riding 80-100km.
  • Individual rides where stokers and pilots can agree on a time and distance for their ride.
  • involvement in triathlons: cycling, swimming and running (guiding is available).
  • Participation in cycling competition events around the ACT, such as the Tour de Femme (women), ACT Veterans Cycling Club and Vikings Cycling Club (tandem races and time trials).
  • Joining in with recreational cycling events in Canberra such as the Big Canberra Bike Ride, Rotary Spring Cycle and Fitz’s Challenge.
  • The Hartley Lifecare Ability Cycle Challenge – a three day ride from Canberra to Charlottes Pass and return.  Our tandem team joins with over 200 other cyclists to raise funds for Canberrans living with complex disabilities.
