RIDE INFORMATION for the “Introduction to Riverhead – Mtb Coached Ride” this Sunday

We’ve been blown away by the interest in this ride and are thrilled that there are so people rearing to go this Sunday. We can’t wait to show you around this fantastic forest and hope that you pick up a ton of new skills along the way. Due to numbers, the group will be split in two, you choose which ride you would like to go in.

Novice-Intermediate Ride

This will be the core group of riders, those where it’s their first (or one of their first) times in the forest and they would like technical skills coaching to enable them to gain confidence and skills to ride the terrain that Riverhead has to offer. Coach is Sasha Smith, with help from Duane Watene and Ben Edwards. Sarah Natac will be the official lolly supplier.

Intermediate+ Ride

This is for riders who are already confident on most terrain but where it’s their first (or one of their first) times in the forest and would like a lead rider to show them around and provide advice on trails. Coach/lead rider is Martyn Pearce. Some of our other experienced club members will also be on this ride to lend a hand.

TAUPO – ROTORUA 100 KM FLYER 2013

The accommodation for this years Flyer has been booked.

As you are probably all aware it is back to front this year, we start in Taupo and end in Rotorua therefore we will stay in Rotorua this year instead of Taupo!

I have booked for 42 people so it will be on a first in first served basis.

I would like an indication of how many people will be wanting to take up the offer so I can organize the transportation.

The package will be pretty much the same as in previous years:

OPTION 1
Accommodation 2 nights in Rotorua – 05 April – 07 April
Transportation to Rotorua from AvantiPlus Waitakere on Friday 05 April  and return Sunday 07 April
Transportation to Taupo start line from Rotorua Saturday 06 April
Refreshments  after the ride, dinner in the evening of 06 April and breakfast on 07 April
Approx. cost $230 – $240 per person

OPTION 2
Accommodation 2 nights in Rotorua – 05 April – 07 April
Transportation to Taupo start line from Rotorua Saturday 06 April
Refreshments after the ride, dinner in the evening of 06 April and breakfast 07 April.
Costs will be confirmed as soon as I have an indication of interest.
