Join a group of fellow Melbourne Social Club bike riders for our monthly morning ride.

Our usual ride is around the Capital City trail which is about 32 km long and the ride takes approx 3 hours 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.

We may change the ride a little bit this month but the ride will be of similar length and duration. Due to recent cafe closures, we will may not stop for breakfast inside anywhere, but we will stop for a take away coffee somewhere on our journey depending on availability on arrival time.

Social Dinner Night in Melbourne CBD

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a social dinner night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

We are heading to one of our favourite places in the city, the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street for a social dinner during the week.

The Sherlock Holmes has a selection of dishes to hearty meals and a great selection of beers and wines. There is great variety of pub grub and an extensive range of beers many served from the big pump handles with some traditional type English ales such as Hobgoblin, ESB and Old Speckled Hen to name a few.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for dinner that has a maximum of 10 people.
