2 Sunday Rides coming up in April

Hi Everyone
Just a wee reminder that April’s feature ride that is happening this Sunday 23 April. We’ll meet at Riccarton House at 11.30am and ride out to the Halswell Market. There will be a group ride back for those who do not wish to make their own way back into town.
And, just to hand, we now have a lovely poster –attached- advertising a Spokes ride on the following Sunday, 30 April. Leaving at 1pm from the Armagh Street Gate, this ride will to look at the proposed route of the Nor’West Arc Cycleway.
With luck, details about May and Junes’ rides and events will be posted next Friday as I’m on leave for all of May and June. Part of my holiday will be cycling the Ring of Kerry in Ireland! No doubt Ireland will be the test for my plastic mac purchased from Briscoes, $4.99. I hope I’ve got a bargain! Otherwise I’ll be kicking myself that I didn’t “splash” out on the very stylish ponchos on offer at Action Bicycle Club, 8 Walker Street. (Thanks Ken and Charlotte and Via Cycles for hosting Ladies Night last Wednesday btw) Happy cycling all!
Meg

Everyone and anyone is welcome!

Dates are 15th and 19th March, meeting at Aro Park at 6:30pm. Bring a bike, a helmet, bike lights, and anything else to keep you comfy on our early evening to twilight meander.

Blue Berry Ride is on this Sunday, 10am Prebbleton

Good Morning All
Obviously the weather bomb last Sunday put paid to our Blueberry Ride. Connie is offering a repeat performance for this Sunday, 29th January.
Meet: 10am at Thyme Café, 597 Springs Road, Prebbleton. The plan is to cycle 6 1/2 km along country roads to Blueberry Bliss Farm (475 Robinsons Road, Broadfield), pick and pay for your berries and then head back for lunch at the Bridge in Prebbleton (Thyme Cottage is changing ownership and probably not up and running).
Anyone looking for a longer ride can contact Connie at 021 027 79250 she’ll organise a start at Westlake Reserve around 9.15am. This will put another 6km onto the ride’s length.
The blue dress theme still stands! I’m off cycle touring in Northland so won’t be with you for January’s jaunt. Meg and Connie
