THE Peel District Cycling Club organised three group rides for members and other interested cyclists over the Christmas and New Year period to maintain fitness levels.
The first group of almost 20 riders left from Clyde Park, Baldivis at 6am, for a challenging 95 kilometre ride.
It took them on quiet back roads to Mudijong, before climbing Jarrahdale Road and visit Serpentine Dam and then down Kingsbury Drive for the return to Baldivis.
A second smaller group left at 6.30am for a 75km ride along the coast, before turning inland for a good work out given the wind and small group size.
The final group left a 7am for a cruisy 55km ride along the coast.
This group was larger than the two other groups combined and was made up of a range of riders from experienced A grade racers enjoying a recovery ride with company, to new recreational riders pushing their boundaries.
All riders rode together and finished the ride together.
The next rides are this Sunday from the same location and the same start times, for more information, including route maps visit pdcc.asn.au
