Weekly Rides in Suva

RAIN OR SHINE... Get on your bike this Saturday morning.... come and join the easy pace of regular RoC (Esquires) Ride... and enjoy the best coffee in town after the ride at RoC1... err.. I mean Esquires 1.

You don't have to be a Velocity Club Member... You don't have to own a fancy bike... Just bring your helmet, your bike and a smile and enjoy the ride (and the company).

Meet at Esquires Coffee House Cnr Victora Pde and Loftus St. at 7am and cycle around Nasese, Muanikau and along the seawall... nice and easy.
Duration approx 45mins with a break half way
Pace fast, slow, snailpace... it's up to you.
Recovery Espresso, Iced Mocha, Muffins, Croissants

Velocity Group ride. Usually a longer distance 30 - 80km, sometimes more.
Every now and then there's breakfast (small donations welcome but not compulsory) at Dom's place after the ride and a chance to watch some cycling (spring classics like Paris - Roubaix or Tour de France DVDs).
Longer rides are sometimes supported but you should bring enough drink, spare tube(s) and tools for the ride as transport cannot always be guaranteed. The group usually splits so if you don't want to try and keep up with the testosterone at the front you can hang back with me and take it (reasonably) easy. Sunscreen is essential as it can be pretty hot even on a cloudy day. Remember to drink regularly .

Monday and Wednesday we have our After Work Rides (if it's not pouring)
Start around 5 -515pm from Esquires 1 (RoC1)
