Beginner Social Ride in conjunction with GWRC Summer Events Programme

This is the second ride advertised through the Greater Wellington Regional Council Summer Events Programme.

***** Please RSVP if you are planning to join us ******** 

We are a social riding group. Saturday rides are suitable for beginner-level riders with mountain bikes and suitable off road tyres. You will need to ensure you have the right equipment for the ride, a first aid kit, water and basic tools, if you have any questions or concerns please email me in advance of the ride.

Dear Social Bikers

This is a great ride as it has all to offer in terms of surfaces to build your confidence: sand, grass, tarmac and Mud/dirt. Also some of the best sea views! See you at usual time of 9.30 am.

Saturday Ride Details: This Saturday we ride the stunning coastal route in Titahi Bay. This ride offers a wide range of surfaces to build your confidence on. Narrow paths, fields and some sand if you want to ride across the beach! This is a mostly flat ride, however some of the more fitter riders do take a detour off the track to enjoy a more hilly route. So no matter what your skills are, you should get out your MTB and join us on Saturday. We meet at 9.30 am at the end of Onepoto Road (there are Parking spaces just before the Boathouses). As you drive into Titahi Bay from Porirua you will follow the road as it runs next to Porirua Harbour/Inlet. Take the first right after the inlet, which is next to the Boat club and before Onepoto park. Follow this road (Onepoto Road) to the end. Text me or call me[masked] if you get lost.

Please feel free to pass on this meetiup to anyone else that might be interested in social riding for beginner level MTB. Remember to RSVP to me so I know numbers on the day.

Kind regards

Amanda

    Thanks for the ride today. I enjoyed it. I tracked the ride as well as my way back home. http://www.komoot.de/tour/t2395476 It was much fun, a bit exhausting though. Feel to leave your car home the next time and join me on the way back. :-)

    Hi guys, how "Beginner" is beginner mountain biking? I have never done it before and am concerned that I'll probably hold everyone up!
