Weekend Rides w/e 12th March


Kumeu show is on this weekend so the Saturday rides will be heading into town for a coffee.  There is no set route except to follow the bike path into town and pick a coffee shop to stop!

Enjoy a leisurely ride good luck for those head to TK on Sunday.


For those that are still around for a Sunday blast we will be heading over the Kumeu way but should be out of the Traffic for most of the way and there are a couple of challenging bumps.  For those that want to avoid the Rabbit head over Waikaukau Valley road and wait at the Highway 16 crossroad for the enthusiastic riders.

Rec Ride including Rabbit and Amriens  56.47km
