Bike Fitting & Shop Rides

Avanti plus The Valley has a shop ride that meets every Saturday morning at 6am at the shop and does a loop of about 40 to 50km.
We use various ride loops around Brisbane such as around the river loop, out to Nudgee Beach, Wynnum and also out to Mt Gravatt.
The Bunch is for people with road bikes and we average about 28km/hr with the main focus being fun and keeping our group together and safe. We finish the ride back at James St normally no later than 8am and have coffee and breakfast.
Anyone is welcome and you dont have to have bought a bike through us to join us and there is no fee involved either.
