River City Riders

Unfortunately, we are sad to advise that the Saturday Sixty is on hold for the time being. Numbers have been lower than we would have hoped, but feedback from those who have come along has been overwhelmingly positive. We would like to thank John for all his hard work and dedication in making the ride happen. If any of our customers have any ideas, suggestions or further feedback about where the ride could go, moving forwards, please do let us know. Safe riding!


We are proud to launch a new initiative at River City Cycles - the River City Riders. 

We have on board a registered coach and long-time friend of the shop, John Whip, who is going to be taking on the role of leading the rides.

Whip brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this role having established and maintained some of Brisbane's iconic bunch rides.

To start with we're going to be running rides on Saturdays, leaving from the shop at 6am. We will aim for 2-2 ½ hours ride time at an average speed of about 26 km/hr across varying routes.

We want to establish a safe environment for our riders to learn and experience the benefit of riding in a safe group under the supervision of an experienced coach. It's a ride, not a race.

This ride is open to anyone with a road bike and a reasonable level of fitness.

It will be strictly no-drop; however, we will try to maintain a comfortable but reasonable pace, regrouping as necessary.

Preliminary route: https://www.strava.com/routes/11036569 

We also require that all riders have at least basic level insurance with any of the following organisations:

  • Cycling Australia (Ride Basic Membership from $60 p/a)
  • Triathlon Australia (Adult membership from $136 p/a)
  • Bicycle QLD (Individual membership from $99 p/a)
  • Mountain Bike Australia (Recreational membership from $99 p/a)
  • Or any cycling specific public liability insurance from a suitable insurance provider. If you have any difficulties, ask at the shop and we will be happy to assist.

Wet weather policy: we won't ride if it's raining.
