Art Tour (Wellington)

PrintArt Ride

Wellington has got some incredible street art, and new pieces popping up all the time. Ever wondered who the artists are? What the pieces are about? We have.

So here it is: Two nights of a fun, guided bicycle tour of some of Wellington’s fabulous street art! Hosted by the charismatic and artistic guru Stephen Templar, we’ll weave through Wellington’s streets and laneways, stopping to learn about some of the creative splendours that colour the walls of the city. 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.

*Cost is $10 and spaces are limited. Please reserve your spot by emailing frocksonbikes@gmail.com and let us know which night you’d like to come along!*

Thanks to Wellington City Council for your support and Stephen Templar for the amazing poster!

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

PYO Blue Berry Ride

Happy New Year All
We start off the New Year with a PYO Blue Berry Ride on Sunday 22nd January 2017. 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 Thyme Café. If you want a pre-ride coffee, just plan to come a little earlier! 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.
Just for fun, we’ll make it a blue theme. But as I understand it the berries could stain, so maybe its best not to wear your best pale blue satin number! Meg
