Fast on the Flat. Fit in the Ferns
No Dimmer Switch on Commitment
The 6am-ers are a group of cyclists based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne who love riding – mostly in the hills. Our mainstay Sunday rides are nearly always in the Dandenongs or in the northern hills toward Kinglake.
Our values are around teamwork and friendship and we treasure the fun of cycling and the good times we have together. Other things that are very important to us are our love of climbing (don’t bother coming out with the 6am-ers if you don’t like climbing) and the commitment we expect from each member of the group.
Many of our members race road and mountain bikes and we often race as a team or in groups supporting each other throughout the year (eg: Melbourne to Warnambool, Baw Baw Classic, Tour of Bright).
Anyone is welcome to join us on any of the rides listed below. We have a very strong rule of etiquette to regroup at the top of each climb, however a fairly high level of fitness is required to ride with us confidently. As a measure of the fitness required, we suggest you should be able to ride a 1:20 in at least 19 minutes in order to maintain a position at the rear of our group (and not hold the bunch up).
If you have any questions about this feel free to contact us.
