Windmill Cycle Club Special Events

Throughout the year we organise special events from day rides further afield, to weekends away and off-bike social events at local pubs, bike shows visits and lots more.

Why not let us know about an event you are planning and we'll tell our members about it here. Please use the Contact Form to get in touch.

Special Events are normally open to everyone, though occasionally we may have restricted places and will offer those to regular riders in the group first. More reason than ever to join us on a local ride!

We've now completed all the planned Special Events for 2021, but we're busy planning trips for 2022!

Follow us on Facebook to ensure you don't miss out on an amazing Windmiller Big Weekender.

The Pub-Ride-Crawl is open to everyone, but the dinner afterwards has limited spaces. Now full.

The long awaited return to the Surry Hills! One of our favourite one day ride locations, the Surrey Hills has got it all - twisty singletrack, big climbs and huge descents. A great day out and one not to be missed.
