The Rides

The Hot Cycles Sunday 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. If you are not on the e-mail list you could miss out so join the mailing list here

The Group is oriented towards social cyclists - the focus is on everyone staying together so the entire group stops if one person punctures and waits at places along the way to regroup.

Hot Cycles Staff and Customers put a lot of effort into these rides so all we ask is that everybody that rides with us observe the Hot Cycles bunch etiquette. NOTE: We often split the bunch for management and safety reasons please assist by letting bunch split if asked. Don't forget the Social Coffee apres velo often at Starbucks Mission Bay or alternative location announced during briefing.

The rides are FREE so if you start riding with this bunch frequently it would be great if you can support Hot Cycles. Should you continue to ride with the Hot Cycles bunch we request that you register your personal details with us for SAFETY reasons. If you have any queries feel free to contact Alan.
