The Rides

Hot Cycles runs several rides throughout the week and are updated on our Facebook page

Sundays ride leaves at 7am from outside the shop (gets us on the road early - less traffic). The courses are varied and cater for varying levels of fitness. We run 3 different paced groups-slow, medium and fast.

Thursdays ride leaves at 5pm from the shop and takes in the airport loop at a brisk pace (65k) *Lights required! Click here for map

Saturdays ride leaves at 7:30am from outside the shop and is geared for novice riders-non drop! (30k) Click here for map

Our group rides are oriented towards social cyclists - the focus is on everyone staying/riding together. All the groups are non-drop, stop for red lights, punctures with re-grouping places along the way, typically at the top of hills.

Hot Cycles Staff and Customers put a lot of effort into these rides so all we ask is that everybody who rides with us observes the Hot Cycles bunch etiquette and road code.

NOTE: We run slow, medium and fast paced bunches for management and safety reasons so please assist us by allowing the staff to control the pace. Don't forget the necessary Social Coffee apres velo usually at Starbucks Mission Bay and/or Sauce Café St. Heliers .

The rides are FREE and we value your support at Hot Cycles. If you have any queries feel free to contact Alan.
