A few of us will be meeting outside Velo Cycles at 8:45am for a 9am departure and riding to this year’s starting location, Musca Street Reserve, Balwyn North.
If you’ve already registered, don’t forget to bring your ticket! Alternatively you can register on the day between 9:30-10:30am.
Please note, we won’t be hanging around at Musca St Reserve for longer than necessary; it will be a full day, and we’ll want to get cracking!
FYXO recommend you bring:
- a warm jacket
- spare socks #protip
- cash/card/monetary instrument
- phone/communication device
- basic toolkit, spare tubes
The forecast for Saturday is wet, with a some possible showers carrying over to Sunday… which means that Roobaix will be a classic affair of mud, bumps and MUD! Luckily it’s all just for fun, right?

June/July club ride
Sunday, 8 July 2018
The next Melbourne Brompton Club ride is in two weeks time. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for us! Here are the details:
Where: Meet at Federation Square
Time: Meet by 11am
Route: Bay Trail to St Kilda/Brighton/as far as we feel like on the day
How long: As decided by the group on the day, but usually 3-4hrs including a lunch stop
We are not planning a separate club ride for July as Cory, Stephen and I have been lucky enough to win places to ride in this year’s Brompton World Championship, to be held on Saturday 28 July 2018. We will be sharing lots of photos on Facebook and Instagram, and we’ll do a blog post-BWC, too.
Next club ride after we get back might be a brewery ride in mid-August, but we’ll confirm details closer to the date.
If you are also out and about having glorious adventures with your Brompton and would love to share them with us all, why not drop me a line? email@example.com
Happy riding everyone!
