The Manukau Veterans Cycle Club holds organised group rides on Sundays.
Our rides are best suited to road bikes and e-bikes.
Come for a ride and see how we roll:
You can try out our Sunday group rides on two occasions before becoming a member.
You’ll be asked to fill in a Visitor’s Form and pay the $ 3 ride fee before going riding.
Email our friendly Membership Secretary for details.
Our regular rides depart from a community hall where there is free parking and toilet facilities.
Riders stay on for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat afterwards. $ 3 is payable per ride to cover hall hireage and refreshments.
The ride schedule and route maps are available to members via the Members Area of this website.
