Ride to top of Rimutaka hill and over to Featherston if the weather is nice.

To the top and back down to Te Marua. Head out the back to a cafe then down Blue Mountains to Silverstream.

If we make it over the hill we can have some lunch in Featherston. Any recommendations are welcomed.

    Taunt out to Lake Ferry afternoon was nice too... Caught a few rays of Sun & the pub before heading back over the hill... Awesome view of snow covered Tararuas just before bottom of the hill too - magic :-)

    Photos are great (thanks for posting them), and just reminds me that I missed out on a great ride (and lunch!). Weather was stunning for it as well.
    Bring on the next ride!

    Hi all, was a good ride today. The weather was awesome and the company was also. We eventually went to Martinborough for lunch and then rode a back road to Greytown before heading home. Thanks for the awesome day.

    Apologies guys - have been fixing a carburetor and the bike isn't back together yet.

    June 30, 2013

  • Jud F.

    I will join you on way over & a coffee but will continue to Masterton to drag a friend out on her bike, she's only just got her learners so we'll probably head to Lake Ferry for a spin weather permitting....happy to go with the flow in the morning :-)

      I know I can't join you but some of the other peeps might. We had a lake ferry ride planned at some point but it never happened. Maybe it can happen today.

      June 30, 2013

  • Neil M.

    Would everyone be keen on riding to Greytown or Martinborough for a light lunch and coffee.

      Caltex rimutaka at 10?

      June 29, 2013

    • Raz

      Yes

    Unfotunately a friend reminded me that I had promised some time ago that I would help her move tomorrow morning. Argh. Will be out in the PM and will keep an eye out for you all (looking for the guy on 900ss with beaming grin). Maybe next time.

    Despite the good weather and the high participation it looks like I'll need to relinquish my hosting duties to Neil this Sunday. I don't think I can make it. I'll do my best but if I'm not there you'll all be in very good hands. Neil, is that ok with you?

    June 26, 2013

    • Raz

      looks like both tomorrow and Sunday look ok. There is a slightly better chance that I can make it on Sunday vs tomorrow but you make the call.

      June 28, 2013

    • Neil M.

      Sunday it is. See eveyone at Caltex.

      1 · June 28, 2013

  • Jud F.

    Will aim to be there... but will be checking the weather for sure : ) Will be nice to meet some of you guys : )

    June 27, 2013

  • CharlieL

    Dam, wont be able to make it this weekend :(

    June 25, 2013

  • Neil M.

    Looks like we might get a good weekend. Lots of new people.

    June 25, 2013

  • Raz

    So it looks less and less likely that the weather will be anything but crap for tomorrow so let's call it. I'll change the date for next Sunday. All in favour?

    June 22, 2013

    • Raz

      Congrats Neil. Have you taken it for a spin yet??

      June 25, 2013

    • Neil M.

      Not yet. Picked it up today. Sounds awesome.

      June 25, 2013

  • Laura

    Most likely not able to attend - bugger! and surely we are due a weekend of nice weather as well!

    June 24, 2013

  • Raz

    Looks like the weather is actually getting better :). Damn!

    • Nickm

      yup if my bike would only start I would be keen lol lol

      June 23, 2013

  • Raz

    Again. Think sunny thoughts. :)

    June 22, 2013

  • Neil M.

    If we're not riding then lets go for a swim.

    June 22, 2013

  • Neil M.

    Personally I think this weekend is not a good idea.

    2 · June 21, 2013

    • Nickm

      agreed

      June 21, 2013

    • Laura

      A winter reminder for sure, and I was really looking forward to the ride on sunday as well! Postponing is a sensible idea

      June 21, 2013

  • Nickm

    sorry, got bike problems and just too much to do before we go overseas tuesday to fix it

    June 21, 2013

  • Nickm

    possibly 3 riding guests

    • Nickm

      If Sam came he is the one I would be worried about

      June 18, 2013

    • Nickm

      Weather is not looking overly good either...

      June 18, 2013

  • Raz

    I think you might have misunderstood me.
    I said think Sunny thoughts not Snowy ones.
    Oh well ... Let's hope the weather gets better by the weekend.

    June 18, 2013

  • Raz

    Ok. Will reschedule for next week. Think sunny thoughts for next weekend.

    June 16, 2013

  • Dave

    I think im going to wimp out

    Hopefully next week

    1 · June 16, 2013

    • Russell

      Yeah same. Fingers crossed for better weather next weekend.

      June 16, 2013

  • Laura

    There is a very high chance that my bike will be remaining in the garage today. ...

    June 16, 2013

    • Nickm

      same, its pissing down in Waikanae beach

      June 16, 2013

  • Russell

    Weather depending

    June 14, 2013

    • Russell

      Sorry, that was a bit brief/rude. I should have said...

      June 15, 2013

    • Russell

      (argh) Great, sounds fun. Will be there weather dependent. Anyone riding from city that wants to meet up at this end? Should I just check here before leaving to see if it's on?

      June 15, 2013

  • Laura

    Yes, this is all looking very weather dependant! Unfortunately I'm busy on Sat, otherwise I'd be keen for a ride up the coast before the rain arrives.

    June 13, 2013

  • Nickm

    hi guys, I am not sure where to post this message, but I was looking at going for a ride Saturday morning before the rain sets in but the route is in Kapiti. would anyone be interested? I can post it here somewhere, we are looking at a hour ride or so then lunch at Murphys Law Waikanae

    Nick

    June 13, 2013

    • Raz

      you should be able to create a new meeting for Saturday. Give it a go and let me know if it doesn't work.

      June 13, 2013

    • Nickm

      ok, will load it up when I get home

      June 13, 2013

  • Nickm

    lol have you looked at the weather? lol lol

    June 13, 2013

    • Nickm

      June 13, 2013

    • Raz

      June 13, 2013

  • Steve H

    Not going to be able to make this one guys
