Cycling in Melbourne Australia
I joined up here a while ago..then went away without saying hello..how rude!
Anyway, I'm Caroline, a recreational rider who has started cycling relatively recently after ..lets just say..quite a number of years out of the saddle.
I ride an Avanti Explorer 2 ...generally around the beach road/path area (live in Elsternwick) but am planning some trips further afield.
At the moment, I'm looking for fitness, fun and a bit of cycling company if there is anyone around :)
hey, I'm new to Australia, just spent the last three months in Egypt and my cycling fitness has plummeted, kept it up a wee bit by swimming loads. I'm keen to get back on the riding and got my bike shipped over from the UK. But would be keen to go for a ride with company?
Love some company ..I'll warn you though..I'm not quick yet, and am only doing 20 -30 kms ..but hopefully both will change soon !
I see you are in Mordy ...and an Brit expat too !
Yeah coolio sounds like a plan. I'm hovering around 25 to 30km/h at the moment depending on the conditions; which is a bit poop considering where I was at before I left the UK last summer. If your up for a ride give me a shout when and where to rondez-vous, I'm happy for any length of distance/time etc...
Yeah Lovely ol'Mordy :-D far from the city so it makes it a nice distance to ride to.
Hi Tom & Caroline, have you looked at The 9 OClockers Group on this site? Sounds like it's just what you're both looking for :)

At the moment I'm cycling up to 30kms ...just working my way up to more.
Would love to do some of these rides mentioned ...just need to find one which links in to my days off work !
