2020 Season CANCELLED

Many of our riders now use e-bikes so that they can maintain their fitness, climb the hills and have the great social interaction that cycling generates.

“Official Group rides” are on Tuesdays, weather permitting.

The objective of cycling is fitness and friendship, so, many members contact each other for rides outside of the PROBUS rides. For a group listing, go to the Member Listing page - login - select the Cycling tab.

Each member must sign a new waiver at the beginning of each season. As part of the waiver the member provides contact details so that they can be informed of weekly ride routes and status.

Please sign the waiver and have it witnessed and provide the original signed to PROBUS. PROBUS must have the signed waiver for you to participate in the rides.

Below are PDFs of the ‘Ride Leaders’ Guidelines’, the “Riders’ Guidelines’ and the waiver and ‘Incident Form’
