Last minute plans for doing part of the Royal Albany (RAT) tomorrow

Sorry for the late notice on this.

Just realised it's looking like cracking weather tomorrow morning so I thought I'd go do another part of the Royal Albany on Saturday Morning. http://rat.org.nz

Did some of it last weekend with a friend (first time I'd been there) and really enjoyed. Was only slightly muddy, mostly dry and will be drier this weekend after the last few days of sun.

My riding buddy's not available this weekend so I'm heading up by myself to get the blood pumping. Will spend about 1-2 hrs max, and looking at doing the following sections time permitting:

The Wasp; Hive; Honey B; thunderbird; The Peninsula Club; Doggy Do; Cortina and finishing on Zephyr.

See track map: click here>>

I'll be parking in the Massey University Albany Rear Car Park (up near the Uni Gym) - Go in the main University Entrance, turn left at the roundabout and drive along the side the main building (on the right) until you get to the end and turn right and find a park. I'll be setting up my bike and myself in that carpark from about 9:15 untill 9:30am - will only wait til 9:30 and then will ride out the backof the carpark, through to Bush Rd and head up to the tracks. If you running late you'll just have to try catch us.

Heres a map reference for the parking and the direction to track:

I'll be going anyway regardless if anyone else comes - but would be happy to have some company if anyone is keen to hit the tracks.

    Thanks for setting this up Rick. It was a fun ride. Will be looking to explore more of the tracks and hitting the other tracks with a little more speed as they become familiar. If either of you want to ride again let me know.

    Awesome weather, great company (even at short notice) - tracks mostly good except for 2 sections over the back that were just a bit muddy. 1.5 hrs went fast. Will have to go back again to do more tracks

    I'm more central (and throw mine in the boot - so can't offer the same), plus have to go somewhere after anyway, so will just meet you in Albany

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
