MQBUG_Ride
Over the next few weeks BikeNorth will be running some Wednesday lunchtime rides around campus starting at 12:30pm and going for about an hour. The rides begin just outside the cafe near the gym, and are run at a moderate pace for fitness. You don’t need to wear lycra or have a road bike, but its expected that you are confident riding a distance of up to 13km with some hills.

If your not able to commute to Uni by bike, you can always bring your bike in on the train on in the car. Its a great opportunity to get some fitness into your week.
