Reminer about Solstice Ride

Hellooo Frockers

Ian and I hardly dare to give the winter solstice ride much more promotion. With 2500 “going” it’s going to be HUGE! On the other hand, do you dare NOT going and missing out on the fun?
Rain, hail, snow or lovely nor’west balmy, its on! Lights compulsory, the more the better. Meet: 5.30pm, Sunday 21 June, Armagh Street Gates. ETA finish 6.15-ish
This is a kid- friendly ride, its all off road. However, with the sheer numbers of bikes it may make it a little difficult for you to keep track of your child, in the dark.
We’ll have a couple of first aiders if you or your bike need patching up. Look out for us- we’ll be wearing red crosses.
A word of warning, too, if you plan to drive your bike(s) to Hagley Park. Currently there is no vehicle access through the Armagh Street gates to the Botanic Gardens car park. You’ll have to find an on-street park in town or take an alternative route into the gardens car park off Hagley Ave. Better still, ride your bike to the event! I hesitate to recommend putting it on the bus because there may be high demand that night.
For after-match functions there are a variety of wining and dining opportunities to choose from: Fiddlesticks (48 Worchester St), the Pegasus Arms (14 Oxford Tce), The Carlton, (top end of Papanui Rd),and the Running Bull bar and grill (top end of Riccarton). They have been warned we are coming. Alternatively if you want a cheap and cheerful sit down Korean/Japanese fusion meal at Mums 24 (62 Manchester), please go to the frocks facebook and rsvp. Or just let me know. Oh and there will be food trucks outside the museum for hardy souls.

PS. We recently featured on an Australian blog. Text not 100% accurate, but who believes everything in the print media anyway? Check out the archived photos. Lovely pics of Angela, Jo, Justine, Nicky and two gals who’s names have escaped me…
