    There are a few good clubs and groups around Sydney, the Manly/Warringah club is very friendly and has a lot of good races and rides. They are based on the Northern Beaches and have access to some great places.

    Out west the Penrith club is big and active, they tend to stick to the Blue Mountains where there is some great riding as well. I don't knkow too much about the southern suburbs but there should be plenty of good places to ride down around Cronulla/Maroubra/Sutherland.

    Try http://www.bicycleinfo.nsw.gov.au and http://www.nsw.cycling.org.au. Both have information on clubs, ride routes and events right through Sydney and New South Wales.

    I am in Sydney but do know much about local clubs or rides as i always ride on my own.

    I do see a few clubs out around Coogee / Maroubra / la perouse

    Also know there are regular races help in Heffron Park in Maroubra.

    I know Sydney Uni has an active club that welcomes non students as well. There are a couple of more hard core rides that head towards the airport on week days that get a lot of the better local riders / visiting pros but think that is a real A game ride

    A lot of people ride either head north towards west head or south to waterfall and the national park on weekends
    and a few clubs do intervals etc in centennial park in the city

    happy to pass on any info i know, or answer any questions but like i say, probably not the person to ask as all i know is club Dave

    If they are not pro then Durian rider will not be interested. If they are pro's there is no avoiding him. you will just look round one day and find a skinny dude on a bamboo bike eating bananas on your back wheel.

    also he does not venture this far south, think he is based on Gold Coast
