I'm hoping you will include this small item/flyer for a charity ride in Vietnam in your branch’s newsletter, and perhaps there may also be a place for it on your website and/or your email news. I’m a member of the Platypus Charity - all volunteers like me. We work with the poorest villages in remote northern Vietnam to support kids in finishing at least 10 years of schooling. We also operate a microbank - helps to buy a pig or a couple of chooks to keep a family going. You can read more about Platypus and what we do at www.platypus-charity.org (I’m on the ‘Our People’ page). I’ve done the ride and it’s excellent, AND cheaper than commercial offerings. Maybe we’ll see you there! Anyway, please have a look at the attached document and see if you can help. Thanks for your consideration.

About our Rides



From 1st of Aug 2018 new start location Rear carpark of Dome in Kelmscott. 



Please review the Ride Calendar for Sunday ride start times, if a pre planned ride is not listed for that particular Sunday then the start time will be 9.00am for a decision on the day. Everybody is welcome. We are a very relaxed and friendly group at Armadale.

Below Suggestions for new riders, Also see Branch ride Guides in documents.


One of the biggest risk factors for those new to a group is feeling the need to keep up with faster riders. Stretching your comfort zone by trying to keep up may put you at risk. You should be able to ride near the speed limit (up to 100 -110kph on open roads) but there is no need to keep up if a gap is created; TEC (Tail End Charlie) will not overtake you and the corner markers will wait until TEC comes through, Don’t panic - resist the feeling of being pressured.

Above all, don’t speed trying to catch up!
