We will be once again hosting our weekly shop ride, with some changes to ensure we are maintaining our compliance to COVID Safe procedures.
There will be up to 50 allowed per group now, departing in seperate groups from the Rush Cafe at 7am like normal.
In case there's too many for the Cafe capacity rules, we will ensure there are plenty of seats outside for you all to talk about the ride that was and catch up over a coffee post ride too!
We can't wait to ride with you again!
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!
The Saturday shop ride has been running for over twenty years, and we think it's a really fun and well packaged ride.
Leaves Total Rush at 7.00am
St Kilda - meet at Luna Park on Beach Road at 7.25am
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.
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.
This gives the stronger riders a chance to stretch their legs and other riders a great opportunity to learn rolling turns and bike craft under the eyes of experienced riders on the way back.
When finished, riders regroup again before heading back to Rush Cafe for a well deserved coffee and breakfast.

Whilst not mandatory, we prefer everyone to have a Total Rush jersey or gilet on so we can identify our group easily. This makes for a safer ride for all concerned.
