The second ride took the group along the Coast to Vines Rail Trail from Willunga through McLaren Vale to Marino Rocks.

This was a journey of 66km.

The group then rode the 60km from Clare to Auburn.

The final installment was a ride of 40km from Auburn to Riverton.

Both the Port Fairy and Koroit casual riders groups have an open invitation for new members to join.

The Koroit group meets for a ride each Friday at the Koroit Railway Station at 9am.

Thursday is the day for the Port Fairy group which meets at the Port Fairy Visitor Information Centre at 10am. 

The goals of the groups are social interaction and exercise, with riders of all fitness levels welcomed. 

The relaxed nature of the groups are shown through their general rules.

These include that lycra uniforms and road racing bikes are not essential tools for participants.
