The club has three organised rides per week and regularly rides through Burswood Park. It also arranges various activities, including camps, tours, social events and training workshops.
Walking groups - suspended for the foreseeable future
The Over 55s Walking Association is a non-profit organisation that encourages the mature population to ‘Be Active’. Membership is $10, if you choose to become a member. The group meets at Burswood Park a couple of times a year, and takes a leisurely walk around the Bridges (Narrows to the Causeway), before returning to the park.
In addition to the day walks, they conduct numerous evening walks throughout summer.
