What started as a small group of half a dozen riders has grown into one of the area’s biggest social rides. Rain, hail or shine expect this social ride attracts a large number of riders. The Spider Bikes loop has a bit for everyone with rolling hills, fast paced sprints & a super fast descent down Guys Hill to cap off a memorable ride.
The Spider Bikes ride takes you on a journey through the township of Officer & up one of Cardinia’s most iconic climbs “Officer Road”. This climb takes you up to Upper Beaconsfield. Offering over 3 and a half kilometers of challenging climbing. Take the climb at your own pace and if you’re into inflicting pain on yourself. There is usually a pissing contest up the front. The more sensible rider will cruise up and appreciate the scenery along the way. It’s your choice.
Enjoy a short break at Split Rock Road whilst everyone re-groups. From here the ride becomes quite undulating as you loop through Split Rock Road & around Stoney Creek Road. There are numerous sharp short pinches along the way which are guaranteed to give the lungs & legs a good workout.
There is a 2nd rest stop at Sally’s Big Arse Burgers before riders get to enjoy the descent down Guys Hill. This is guaranteed to leave a smile on your face.
This is a casual no-drop ride & there are several rest stops along the way. The ride is suitable for riders of all abilities and new riders are most welcome.
As cyclists we do enjoy a cup of Coffee, and one of the best parts of this ride is stopping at the 4 Figs Café after for a cup of Coffee& a chat.
