Cycling has continued to develop here at St Patrick’s College under the guidance of Mr Andrew Chamings and Mr Matthew Taylor.

Students are offered the opportunity to further develop their own fitness and potential on the bike through a number of road and track cycling events held throughout the season.

Recently, the sport has seen the addition of a Mountain Bike event along with the usual road events offered through Cycling Victoria.

Wednesday afternoon riding is also available throughout the year with riders of all abilities able to participate.
