There are several social and training rides occurring around Griffith each week. Whilst these rides are not organized or sanctioned by the Griffith Cycle Club, you will find many of our club members on these rides. They can introduce you to cycling in groups and give you information on how to join our club and gain a Cycling Australia licence.
Please refer to our GCC ‘Guide to Rider Etiquette’ for more information about bunch riding.
