Parakai Wellsford training ride – September 9th

So its that time of year – the First of the seasons Parakai to Wellsford and back training rides.

http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/fullscreen/22256952/

The route is pretty simple. Park at the Parakai Hotpools.

Ride up SH16 towards Wellsford ( North ) which includes some pretty fun hill climbs

If you’re wanting to do 80km then you turn around at Mangakura ( the Hoteo River bridge ) and head back

Depending upon time and weather – we may make the full turnaround point the TOP of Mt Auckland ( at the look out ) rather than at Port Albert Rd – this will be confirmed on the day.

Start time for the long ride is 7am.

Coffee and BBQ included in the price.

DOC riders – $20 per rider

Non DOC riders $25 per rider. This covers support vehicles BBQ drinks and Free coffee!

We’re still looking for 2 or 3 support drivers ( with vehicles ) so anyone interested in doing this with a little more comfort please email me ( road@deptofcycling.com )

Any questions let me know

cheers

Mike
