Rides & Events Calendar


The Rides & Events Calendar caters for all members of Ladies Back On Your Bike, whether a road rider or a path rider. The rides are then listed by Group.  Please refer to Team App if you would like to book into a ride or email admin@ladiesbackonyourbike.com.au if you have any queries.

Join ‘Ladies Back on Your Bike’ for a test ride or participate in a lesson to ensure you are allocated to the most suitable riding skill group. These skill groups are differentiated by cycling skill level and fitness. Events for each group are specifically created with these levels in mind and adapted to speed and duration of the ride. Enjoy social, as well as organised bike rides around Melbourne with your cycle group. You will not only make progress with your cycling skills but meet other incredible women.


Insurance is recommended

Ladies Back On Your Bike recommends all riders have public liability cycling insurance and/ ambulance cover. If you have the misfortune of being involved in an accident, or cause damage/injury to other people whilst you are on your bike, cycling insurance will cover you for personal liability, and having ambulance cover could save you thousands of dollars if required.  TAC does cover a rider cycling on the road but NOT when cycling on paths, or off road.   Insurance can be obtained through AusCyling
