With only 6 weeks to go until the Sunbuild Top End Gran Fondo, we plan to ride the 59 km Darwin Family Law Half Fondo route. Start and finish at the Darwin Waterfront with after-ride drinks and beverages at the Coffee Club. Please arrive for a 6:20 AM ride brief with a 6:30 AM sharp departure. Lights will be required.
Note, that to avoid illegally riding past the "No bicycles" sign on the Stuart Hwy southbound from the Darwin Free Spirit Resport (see https://bit.ly/36r73JU), we will take the bike path from McMillans Rd to Howard Springs Rd and resume the above route onto Lambrick Rd.
Darwin Cycling Club Social Rides are free and a great chance to get involved in the Darwin cycling scene. They are "re-group often, no drop" rides, at about a 25-30 km/hr average. These rides are ideal if you're new to Darwin or never ridden in a group before, although that doesn't mean they're only for novices. If you're new to bunch riding (or even if you're not), check out our Bunch Riding Etiquette for Cyclists from Cycling Australia.
DCC membership is not required and we encourage members and riders of all abilities to join in. If you would like to know more about insurance coverage and memberships see our Membership web page.
