Runs and Events

Every Saturday morning, Rotorua Ulyssians meet at the Lakeside Café at 10.30 am for a “Big Breakfast” for some, and a tea/coffee for others. It is a great time for a general chin wag. Visiting Ulyssians are very welcome to join in the frivolity.

Most rides leave from the Rotorua Lakeside Cafe at 10:00 am. Please read each ride with care as the times and leaving place may be different. 

The following are all “Weather Permitting” rides. If you are not sure if the run may be cancelled because of inclement weather, phone the Rider In Charge (RIC)
