About ARC

ARC is an informal group of cyclists (male and female) from the Ashburton, Glen Iris and Camberwell area. We ride for fun and fitness and we seek to be inclusive and helpful to all riders, beginners or experienced.

Rides are usually on Saturday and Sunday mornings to locations such as Blackrock (44km return), Mordialloc (66km), Sassafras(70km) and Frankston (100km). Rides start from Ashburton Railway Station car park, west/city side of the track unless otherwise stated. The start times vary from 6.15am to 7am (depending on the ride distance). A coffee stop is a feature of most rides and Sunday coffee at Blackrock is now an ARC tradition. Refer to the ARC Forum for up to date information on ride plans or to share your ride plans. We enter many of the main organised recreational rides in Victoria such as, Around the Bay in a Day and Amy's Ride. We also have riders who participate in racing with the Carnegie Caufield Club, the Eastern Vets and Southern Vets clubs.

You are welcome to join in on a ride. Please note that riders taking part in these rides do so at their own risk. Accidents can and do occur. We condone safe and legal riding practices and recommend you always wear a helmet, use lights when appropriate, and abide by local road rules and regulations. Any of the bunch/group rides found on this website and the ARC Forum site are used at the participants own risk.
