Team Brevet - Oppy 24 2016

Too often we avoid a challenge because it is too difficult. In a busy world I often hear people saying, ‘I don’t have the time’. 

So, take inspiration from Team Brevet. Five ‘ordinary’ people, busy with family and jobs, who together achieved something truly extraordinary; a new Audax Fleche Opperman 24 Hour team time trial record of 800km.

Boxing Day Everest

At La Velocita we love a good Everesting story. So when we heard there was a group of five riders taking on the challenge on Boxing day… when most of us are relaxing… we sent our resident Everesting expert Brendan Edwards along to check it out.

Christmas Hills

Time flies and Christmas is here! Here at La Velocita, we love Christmas and it may sound a little cliché but what better way to celebrate than to get out and ride Christmas Hills just before Christmas.

Shimano-Soigneur King Valley Experience

When the email landed telling me that Shimano was hosting weekend experience with Soigneur and I had been invited, my excitement levels went into overdrive.

To say it was an ‘experience’ is an understatement. Beautiful scenery, awesome riding and great company were just the beginning.

Beach Road Melbourne - Victoria

Almost all road cyclists have had a least one ride on Beach Road.  It’s a road that polarises people.  It's seen as a cycling mecca by many, with its long wide sections, minimal traffic lights, views, a couple of hills and some good coffee shops.

Beach Road sees all types of riders, new riders finding their way through to pro riders, young and old, small groups through to massive groups, you will see clubs like TKM - The Kings Men, the 6amers, shop rides and more and of course the somewhat infamous Hell Ride.
