FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • I am a very experienced rider do I need to do the intro ride?
    Unless you have been racing for a previous club, yes! There are many strong solo riders who would benefit from improving their bunch riding skills. Another reason is that some of our signals and the way we roll over is different to other clubs.
  • Who is the intro ride for?
    We are especially catering for: • people new to road cycling who have only ridden by themselves. • roadies who have only ridden with groups of friends • triathletes who have never ridden in a bunch • mountain bikers who are getting into road riding • roadies who need a bit more confidence • everyone (we have different calls and rotate/roll differently to other clubs)
  • When are the intro rides?
    They are held on the first Saturday of the month at 6.30am.
  • Where do we meet for the intro ride?
    All SCC rides start from the centre of Centennial Park on Parkes Drive, near the retro American coffee trailer. Still not sure? Click on the Rides section of this website for a map
  • What do I have to bring?
    Yourself, your road bike (with drop handle bars), a water bottle, a tool kit and spare tube and maybe an energy bar or small snack. If it's winter, lights and warm clothes like gloves, base layers, arm warmers, leg warmers and wind vest. Wear more than you think as there is a bit of standing around listening to instructions so you get cold quickly.
  • What kind of bike do I need?
    A road bike with drop handlebars. We don't allow flat bars or aero bars as these are not ideal for bunch riding. You don't need clip-in pedals and shoes for the intro ride but worth in investing in some if you continue with the sport. Whatever you do don't try clip-in pedals for the first time on the intro ride - they take a bit of practice to get used to!
  • What do we do and where do we go on the intro ride?
    We will do some bunch riding skills at the beginners' bike track in Centennial Park, getting used to riding close to one another. We then ride to Heffron Park in Maroubra practising bunch riding along the way. At Heffron we review the 2km bike circuit and learn how to paceline and rollover and practice. We then return to Centennial Park in the bunch, rolling. We finish back where we started at the Spruce Goose caravan where you can grab a coffee and meet the other club members (who would have finished their morning rides).
  • What time does it finish?
    About 8:30am
  • How fit do I need to be?
    We cater for a variety of abilities but you should be able to ride at least 7 laps of Centennial Park in an hour (27km/h average).
  • Do I have to join the club after?
    We hope you enjoyed the intro ride and join us but you're under no obligation. Although if you want to join us on club rides after we require you to become a member.

The club's AGM is held in November every year. Technically all roles are vacated at the AGM, and if there's more than one nomination for any role, a vote is held. Nominations need to be in seven days prior to the AGM. You can nominate yourself or someone else. Many of the committee members have a sub-committee to help out. It's better to have too many volunteers than not enough! If you're interested have a look through role description below...
