This is on Sunday 12th February so will incorporate a Sunday Ride. Those Armadale members who don’t wish to attend can leave the normal ride location at the normal time of 9am.

Re Alf Bridle....From the Perth Branch website.

Perth Branch sincerely respects the wishes of Alf's Family to hold a private service to commemorate his life and passing.

Perth Branch Executive Committee however feels that Ulysses Club members statewide need to be able to attend a service of commemoration.
Branch President John Gliddon, in discussion with other (executive) members proposes that a memorial service be held on Sunday 12th February, at a location to be finalised very soon. 
John will be notifying Branch Presidents around the state so that they may notify their members.

Alf Bridle made a huge contribution to Ulysses in WA and will always be respected and remembered for this.
A programme for this event is currently being organised by members of the Perth Branch committee.

Please keep an eye on this topic for further information.

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!
