Updated time re New Brighton Parade, Saturday 9 December

Frockers Newsflash!
Frocks on Bikers now have to be at New Brighton Club car park on Hawke St at 10am (10.15am at the very latest). We have to be in ONE cycling group, in lucky number 7 position so no just tagging along in between other groups if you are late!

It will be about 3° coolers than in town, but probably well warm enough for a dip! Trust me, the water is very warm. So bring your togs and sunblock, your sunnies and sun umbrella, some money for some market kai and join Connie and I for a post parade, swim and picnic brunch on the beach.
If you want to bike down with Connie, she leaves at 8.30am from the corner of Barbadoes and Cambridge Tce.
Now I have your attention, another newsflash! The Council are putting on an event to celebrate the completion of The Rapanui Cycle Way, next Wednesday 13 Dec. Running from 7.30-10.30, there will be lots of cycling related activities going on including free breakfast snacks. We need volunteers to help with cooking (on BBQ) eggs and serving. Can you help? email me if you can: meg.christie@cdhb.health.nz Even if you can’t help, if you live in the area, or are passing though that morning , do pop in.

Meg

December Frocks on Bikes Newsletter

Good Afternoon Frockers and a big welcome to new members
About 6 years ago we went out to New Brighton and took part in their Christmas Parade. We’ve decided to do this again, aiming for a more relaxed and low-key procession than our usual big Santa Parade in town. We do hope you’ll join in, dressing up in your Kiwiana Christmas beachy attire.
You’ll next hear from me in the New Year. Connie and I already have a ride planned for January. But, as always, if you have a good idea for a ride, let us know. Merry Christmas everyone- just 1 month and 1 day to go!
Meg

Guy Fawkes Ride this Sunday 5 November

Welcome to our 30 new members, recruited at last weekend’s Bike Expo.
Phew! Biketober is over and we trust you made it to at least one event or ride. Meg went to/organised/volunteered at 9 events and Connie probably did double that!
Due to popular demand we are again riding out to New Brighton Beach this coming Sunday to the Guy Fawkes display- all details in the newsletter . Weather looks good at this stage… cancellations done by 6pm Sunday.
SITUATIONS VACANT: Our usual Santa Parade organiser, Nigel, is stepping down after 7 years in the role. Someone from Spokes Canterbury, the cycling advocacy group, may take this on but if any frocker wants to organise it this year, give us a shout. Frocks has never officially organised this, we just promote and support it. May the force be with you!
Meg and Connie

Last 12 days of Biketober

Dear Frockstars
A big THANK YOU for those of you who were able to help out with the bike valeting last Sunday. It earned Go Cycle Christchurch $1300, some of which will be on-donated to another cycling project in Christchurch.
This is the last shout out for Biketober, and a final plug for the National Bike Expo. This 2-day consumer show brings together all kinds of biking: commuting, family, recreational, touring, e-biking and sports. It’s a place to come for inspiration and a place to equip yourself with the gear and the advice to make your next journey, whether it’s across New Zealand or to the local shops. This is the ideal event to bring your family to: there will be a kid’s zone for the 1-10 year olds so mums and dads are free to browse. NZ Bike Expo will have 3 trial areas outside on the airfield and runway: a kid’s track, an off-road demo track, and the 1km runway route for testing e-bikes and road cycles and a full programme of speakers and races throughout both days.
On the 2nd page is the calendar of events for the last 12 days of Biketober, starting with the bike breakfasts tomorrow morning ? Meg and Connie
If you are at a loose end this labor Day, then come along for the 3 in 1 ride Frocks ride, and meet a special guest with a special message

Biketober event continues apace, Labour Day ride

Dear Frocks on Bikers
I hope you managed to get to one of the Biketober Go by Bike Breakfasts this morning. Connie was handing out free coffees at Hagley’s Armagh Street Gate, Meg was serving up free smoothies at the Antigua Boatshed Bridge and we haven’t heard from the Edgeware team to see how their breakfast went yet. It’s so encouraging seeing so many people loving their early morning commute ? Studies have shown that people on bikes are the happiest of all commuters.
So much to say, so little space. This is October #2 newsletter, and we’ll have another one out before the end of Biketober.
Did you know that frockers can buy 2 for 1 tickets to the NZ Bike Expo on 28 & 29 October by using the code BIKETOBER2829? But only up to 16 October. Also don’t forget your Biketober Passport, and the chance to win some cool prizes at the BikeExpo. You can pick up passports at participating shops or at City of Cycles on Sunday 15 October. Details about this on page 2 of your newsletter, or just google Biketober Christchurch.
If anyone fancies a muddy entry-level mtb ride, come along to Hansen Park at 5pm tonight, Tuesday. If hills are your thing, then Leisa is providing a free skills training session at 10am Wednesday 11 Oct meeting at Victoria Park. Yah the grotty weather is over for now.
As always, let us know if you no longer need or want these emails. We won’t take offence! Happy Biketober riding everyone
Meg and Connie
