Melbourne Social Cycling : Capital City Trail

Federation Square (opposite the main tram stop on St Kilda Road)

Join a group of fellow Melbourne Social Club bike riders for our monthly morning ride.

Our usual ride is around the Capital City trail which is about 32 km long and the ride takes approx 3 hours and is mainly on sealed bike paths. It requires a reasonable level of fitness (as there are hilly sections) and a suitable bike in good working order.

We may change the ride a little bit this month but the ride will be of similar length and duration. Due to recent cafe closures, we will may not stop for breakfast inside anywhere, but we will stop for a take away coffee somewhere on our journey depending on availability on arrival time.

Meet David and Ian at Federation Square at 10 am directly opposite the tram stop on St Kilda Road. The maximum allowed on this ride is 10 people in total. Please stay away if you are suffering from any cold/cough symptoms.

Trivia Night in Melbourne CBD

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne CBD

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine etc. Janet is a well-respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.
