The Dunedin and Mosgiel area hosts several bunch rides. The local area is lucky to have a tight-knit cycling community, and many of our riders take part in several different bunchies. These rides vary quite largely in level, so there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone.

Sunday Bunch Ride

Sunday’s, leaving 9 am at the clubrooms (Seddon Park Velodrome, Mosgiel). Keep an eye on the Facebook page for further details. All welcome.


SAMS is a popular ride which generally takes place in the summer months. The ride leaves at a leisurely pace from just outside Mosgiel and travels out past Outram to ride the SAMS block. From Miller Rd, the pleasantries vanish, it’s race pace and every man for himself back to Mosgiel.
