Ridgley Loops & Orielton Lagoon

We are easing into the new year with our first social ride offerings: the 18 km Ridgley Loops ride on Sunday 27 January, and the easy 12 km ride around Orielton Lagoon on Wednesday 30 January.

The ride route has 230 metres of climbing and takes in the Ridgley and East Ridgley loops which traverse the north-west’s lush farmland. Riders wanting an easier outing can elect to do one loop and riders wanting more of a challenge can tack on the West Ridgley loop to the route.

If you are interested in joining the ride RSVP and meet before 11 am opposite Sargents IGA supermarket on the corner of Queen Street and Ridgley Highway.

An option for the end of the ride is a drive/ride to Guide Falls and short waterfall ramble.For the full map and route climb check out the Ride with GPS site

The Orielton Lagoon ride will leave the Sorell Visitor Centre at 5 Somerville Street at 10 am and we'll finish the ride with coffee and cake at 
the Velvet Cafe by 12 noon.

This is an easy, flat ride following the Waterway Trail and other off-road paths with some road crossings and on-road riding. For a full map and photos visit the Ride with GPS site

Please register if you are interested as the ride will be called off if the weather is bad. 

This ride is being offered as part of Bicycle Network Tasmania’s social rides program. Social rides are free and organised by volunteers to help riders meet new people, learn new skills and gain confidence on their bikes.
