Sunday Morning Social Rides
Sunday Morning social rides - These rides leave at 8:30, Meeting outside the Fern Cafe to start. Distance can vary in kms dependant on riders. We will regroup at designated points along the way. Please remember to bring 2 water bottles, food, spare tube & pump and most importantly some $ for a coffee at the end of the ride. The Fern cafe in the Suncourt courtyard is a great spot plenty of places to park the bike, plenty of seating and is very sheltered.
These rides are a great way to experience the beauty of our district, and its always more fun riding with a group. These rides are a social pedal, not a race, which gives cyclists an opportunity to gather together for a pleasant Sunday morning ride. All visitors are welcome.
Thanks to Fern cafe, Suncourt Plaza, Tamamutu Street, for coffee, please bring $ for this.
Everybody is welcome.
