Two bunches leave at 5.45am and 6.00am corner North Road and Nepean Highway, Brighton. Travels south along Nepean Highway to Mordialloc roundabout and back to Café Racer in St Kilda. The distance is approximately 40km. This is a strict small chain ring gentle recovery pace at 30 km/h on a still morning getting back to Racer around 7.20am.

NORTH ROAD RIDE - Tuesdays & Thursdays - Classic Euro or Rabble
The 5.45am bunch is a classical euro sight to behold - disciplined two a breast pace of 35 km/h to Modialloc roundabout, then tight rolling turns up to 45 km/h to Cafe Racer. Sit in business class and enjoy the watching well executed turns, if you like.
The 6.00am bunch is an undisciplined rabble that goes full gas all the way down and finishes at Cafe Racer and showing a general disregard for euro traditions, style and class. MAP MY RIDE
