The Saturday Shop ride is our bread and butter ride. The essential to kick start your riding with Total Rush and an institution of Melbourne cycling!
Total Rush Shop Ride
The Saturday shop ride has been running for over twenty years, and we think it's a really fun and well-packaged ride.
Join us for a friendly and inclusive ride that caters for a wide variety of fitness and skill levels.
Riders must be on a drop handlebar-style road bike to participate in this ride: No TT bikes or Flat Bar bikes.
Leaves Total Rush Cafe at 7:00 am (Cafe is open from 6:30 am for your pre-ride caffination!)
St Kilda - meet at Luna Park on Beach Road at 7.25 am - you'll see the pink train coming, just jump on the back as we go past.
The ride takes a leisurely pace to Mordialloc, and rolls in a two-up formation the whole way with an emphasis on no riders being dropped.
Pace is usually around 28kph.
Once we arrive in Mordialloc, the ride will take a quick rest-room and regrouping break before returning to St Kilda where we finish the ride at Luna Park.
For the return trip, the bunch often splits into separate groups (sometimes we form as many as three groups) consisting A, B and C groups and so on.
A - 38-50+ kph
B - 33-40 kph
When finished, riders regroup again opposite Luna Park, before heading back to Rush Cafe for a well-deserved coffee and breakfast.
Join us this Saturday! The ride runs in most weather.
