Frocks on Bikes’ December feature ride this Saturday

Dear Frockers

Welcome to new members !

We appreciate this is a busy time of year BUT if you find yourself at a loose end on Saturday morning, why not throw whole heartedly yourself into the festive season by joining our "bike" float at the New Brighton Santa Parade? We’ve done this a couple of times over the years and they are great fun. All details attached…I don’t want to jinx the weather by suggesting a swim afterwards but I may just take a plunge if you care to join me 🙂

As always we welcome your ideas for rides and events. We already have some novel ideas for 2019!

Meg and Connie

November Frocks on Bikes Newsletter

Dear Frocks on Bikes members

We thought we would lie low over November, given we had been organising (or merely promoting) 98 Biketober events and rides. HOWEVER coming up over the next 10 days, starting this Sunday, there are 4 wonderful, free, cycle-friendly events: 2 opening invitations, 1 public presentation and 1 ride leader course.

Meg and Connie, with thanks to Clare Piper, frocker and lead for this month’s exciting Frocks Feature Event. Read all about it!

5th and final Frocks on Bikes newsletter for Biketober

Greetings on this damp October day. Luckily the weather takes a turn for the better tomorrow for the last of the Biketober rides and events. Whether you "believe" in Halloween or not, its always good to have an excuse to dress up, have a bit of fun and escape reality once in a while

We’re having a real blow out with this Roll Over Biketober 3-in-1 event with riding, dancing and drinking. Come along to one or all three. The first 2 (riding and dancing) are totally-kid-friendly. We’ll supply some treats to give out to riders and the hoards of ghouls and goblins we’ll encounter!

This ride comes to you from Ann and Meg

pssst For those staying on longer than 8pm, don’t forget locks and lights!

Week 4 of Biketober- An e-bike ride to Lincoln and Tai Tapu, and Biketober prize giving

Already we’re into week 4 of Biketober! This week there are almost 20 more rides and events on offer. I have not advertised a ride at the Adventure Park (CAP) tonight because it is already booked out. However, if there is interest from Frocks members, we can re-run this. Basically the aim of tonight’s session is to show confident mountain bikers the ropes at CAP – how to get a lift pass, how to access the lift and put your bike on the lift, and which is the easiest, least scary descent for newbies! Anouk showed me and now I’m sharing the love J . So let me know if you think this could be a Frocks ride -although probably without the 70% subsidy on your lift pass that Biketober is offering tonight’s lucky riders.

I made a typo on the newsletter Mary-Ann sent out last week- this week’s feature ride as well as the grand prize giving event at the Art Center are both on Saturday 27. If you want to go to both events there should be plenty of time for you to get there.

See you somewhere!

Biketober Week No 3

Welcome to week 3 of Biketober!

I am currently AWOL from the medley of wonderful Biketober activity this week. Therefore this newsletter come to you via my colleague Mary-Ann. Thanks Mary-Ann!

How is everyone going with their Bike Passports? Being a passport destination influenced my choice to lunch at Black Betty’s, drink at Pegasus Arms, shop at Piko Wholefoods, pick up a spare inner tube at Cycle Trading and get a prescription filled at Unichem last week! Visit at least 20 of the other 36 bike-friendly places on the passport, get stamped, and be in the draw to win great prizes at the grand prize giving on Sunday 27 October. You can pick up a passport at pretty much any bike shop around town.

Meg and Mary-Ann

Correction: Bike ride out to the Bike Expo leaves at 9.30am!

Hi everyone
Anouk spotted a typo in Monday’s newsletter- the bike ride out to the Bike Expo on Saturday leaves at 9.30am NOT 8.30am! If you were planning on going you get an extra hour in bed 🙂 Meet at Hagley Park’s Armagh Street Bridge. Thanks for pointing that out Anouk!!
