‘We hope to develop and encourage riders with an interest in racing, getting them to reach their full potential in time for the Goldfields Cyclassic and Community Challenge’

They say: Our club has origins that date back to the late 1920’s, when mining was booming in the Goldfields. Over the years the club boasted a membership in excess of 100 racing members. Today, the Eastern Goldfields Cycle Club retains much of its original purpose, but is far more inclusive in its membership. We offer both recreational and competitive activities and offer training rides throughout the week, catering for all skill levels, from novice through to A-grade riders. We hope to develop and encourage riders with an interest in racing, getting them to reach their full potential in time for the Goldfields Cyclassic and Community Challenge, held every June long weekend.

Club cafe: How many cafe/bar/restaurant businesses do you know that are open 24 hours? Not only open to those up for a cycle before the sun has had a chance to rise, Monty’s Restaurant is located in the heart of Kalgoorlie; perfect for the Eastern Goldfield cyclists. Just a few of doors down, those who like to think of themselves as coffee connoisseurs rather than drinkers will be more than satisfied with the strong drop served at Relish cafe. Cyclists needing a serious caffeine hit after a Sunday morning ride can be found refuelling in the seating area, cleverly enclosed in the narrow lane way at the side of the counter and kitchen.

Monty’s Restaurant, 80 Hannan Street, Kalgoorlie WA 6430

Club charity: Eastern Goldfields support the Amy Gillet Foundation who have one purpose: to reduce the incidence of death and injury of bike riders. A cause that is close to many riders hearts.
