Each Sunday morn’ between a dozen and 30 cyclists ride a different published route from Nth Turramurra, Hornsby or St Ives to cafés on Sydney’s satellite outposts eg Galston, Mt White, Palm Beach, Windsor.

One Sunday each quarter, the Male contingent pays a $10 entry fee to the 100km Cinderella Century”, so that

  •    each maiden 100km Female finisher is delivered a dozen long stem red roses to her office or home; and

  •    each maiden 50km Female finisher of the Petticoat Prologue and each 100km Female finisher (who has previously achieved her debut Century) receives a single long stem red rose at the following Sunday Muggaccino’s ride.

There are no ride entry costs on any other Muggs’ Sunday ride. provides weekly Bullsheets which note –

Muggaccinos arranges 6 cycle weekends away each year, with a 60/90km bike ride each day and much merriment and mirth after dark:
             Tour de Wangi Wangi for Loop the Lake,  Tour de Wiseman’s Ferry,  Tour de Macarthur,
            El Tour de Bundanoon,  Tour de Bong Bong,  Linger ‘n Die.

Ride with Muggaccinos explains that participants need to be familiar with cycling on public roads to join a Muggs’ Sunday ride.  Muggs of the male persuasion will help a damsel in distress learn how to ride 50km.  You also need to be in general agreement with Muggaccinos' "Ten Commandments".


Apart from the qtly Cinderella Century where each Male pays an entry fee, the only cost to ride is what you stick down your throat at the multitude of cafés that Muggs visit each Sunday.  However, you will need a bike of 2nd hand value $500 or more, because an “old clunker” can be hard work.
