Group rides are opportunities for those participating in the Lilyroo Ride to ride together. Group rides are arranged by individuals, all participants in them waive the Lilyroo Fund, the Royal Women’s Hospital, the Royal Women’s Hospital Foundation and our sponsors from any responsibilities of the group ride.

Cycling on public roads is a potentially dangerous activity which carries risks. Anyone cycling on these rides, acknowledges this and is aware that cycling is a physically demanding activity which requires a high level of fitness, skill, nutrition, preparation, correct equipment and adherence to rider etiquette.

Our friends at Tour de Cure have developed a Bunch Rider Rules and Etiquette document which forms the basis of the understanding to safe and enjoyable bunch riding, that we will employ on our group rides and throughout the Lilyroo Ride. All riders regardless of their years of experience are encouraged to review this document on our Rider Etiquette page.
