Boroondara Based Rides
Ashburton Riders Club (ARC)
Ashburton Riders Club An informal group of cyclists from (mostly), the Ashburton, Glen Iris and Camberwell area.
The Boroondara Bushwalkers also do rides.
Many of our commuting members are more than happy to be accompanied on their rides into the CBD, if all you need is a guide to get you on your way. If you're not sure you have the confidence to go on a ride just yet, you may like to pick up some riding tips in our Bicycle Information section.
