Melbourne Social Cycling and Breakfast

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.

This month, the ride will begin at Federation Square. From there we will make our way along the Southbank of the Yarra through to the Docklands precinct (which we can explore) and past the Melbourne Observation Wheel.

We then connect with the Capital City Trail riding past Royal Park and the Zoo continuing along the trail through the inner northern suburbs.

We will take brunch in North Carlton or Fitzroy after about an hour of riding.

After brunch we will continue on the Capital City Trail back to the Yarra near Dights Falls where we will take a short break before heading back along the river to Federation Square.

The ride takes approx 3 – 3.5 hrs including time for brunch 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. The ride is about 32 km long.

Meet David at Federation Square at 8.45 am directly opposite the tram stop on St Kilda Road.

Flavour of the Month - Spanish.

Robert Burns Hotel, 376 Smith Street, Collingwood.

The Robert Burns Hotel is the home of truly traditional Spanish cuisine, with a very Scottish name.

Spaniard Urbano Gutierrez introduced the Spanish flavour to this Australian pub in 1984, back when variety in the local hospitality market was much harder to find.

The Robert Burns legacy has since been passed to a new, fresh, yet still Spanish team – who bring the authentic tastes and cultures of their homeland to the Robbie Burns on Melbourne’s iconic Smith Street.

Food consists of Croquetas, quesos, paella, gambas, jamón Iberico, housemade chorizo as well as a variety of other dishes.

If you already love Spanish cuisine, you won’t need convincing. Head chef Marc Albalate’s authentic Spanish dishes will take you on a gastronomic trip, and a changing seasonal selection offers something a bit different from your traditional favourites.

Beers come mainly from Spain as well as a few locals and Internationals, whilst wines are dominated by Spanish, Portugese and Chilean. They also have a few ciders to choose from as well.

Meet Alan at the reserved tables.
