Muriwai Road Ride (60km)

Massey Birdwood Settlers Hall

This is a classic West Auckland road cycling ride. We'll meet at the Massey Domain at Red Hills Road. It is quite a challenging country road ride with around 850m elevation gain and 60km distance, so only suitable for reasonable fit riders. Only road or gravel bikes, no MTB's please. It is a very nice rural countryside ride with the half way mark in Muriwai. We'll arrive from the southern end above beautiful Maori Bay overlooking the beach and the gannet colony. It is the perfect spot to take photos. There is a nice cafe' on the bottom where we could have an icecream or a coffee to get us in the right spirit to climb up the hill towards the way back. We'll ride a comfortable pace. It is not a race. Please don't forget puncture repair kit and sufficient water. If it would be rain or very windy I would have to postpone the event. We can park at the Massey Domain at Red Hills Rd, Corner Don Buck Rd.

[MTB] Sunday Woodhill Bi-Weekly Ride

Woodhill Mountain Bike Park

Come and join us for a bi weekly MTB ride at Woodhill on Saturdays. In the unlikely event that none of the hosts can make it then a ride may be cancelled up to a few days before. SKILL LEVEL This is a blend of Intermediate and Advanced riding and I envisage we will start with intermediate and likely split up into 2 smaller groups later in the morning to allow those who want to continue to focus on an intermediate level to do so while a few in the group seek out a couple more challenging trails to end the day. You can choose which level you wish to do. TRAILS Mix of grade 3 & 4 through out the day but as mentioned above you can elect to do only 3's and the odd easy 4 if you aren't in the advanced camp FITNESS This is the first ride in this series after the covid lockdown so the pace will be slow and social (with appropriate COVID distancing of course) to allow us to build up fitness again. We won’t be treating these as uphill races, the ride is more focused on the ride downhill so your uphill climbing speed is not critical though you must be fit enough to climb judgement call at least 2 times. ACG operates a no drop policy which means we regroup at trail heads and trail ends to ensure everyone is safe and accounted for. We will be out there for a few hours but it will be at a comfortable pace and will regroup for each other at junctions and top of hills. ----------------- MEETING POINT Arrive and meet up at the BBQ tables in front of the main Woodhill MTB Park shop by or prior to 8.45am so everyone can have time to purchase park passes and get their equipment ready to ride by 9:00am. Arriving early means you won't be left behind - you can always grab a coffee and responsibly socialise using physical distancing with the other riders while we wait for the 9:00am start time. Casual pass $15 or you can buy 6 or 10 month passes. *PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING CONTRACT TRACING INFO* All visitors will be required to sign in on arrival to ensure we are contact tracing. Woodhill have QR codes and Txt In options to make it easy and simple. Please stop at the riders gate to show your confirmation. We have an Ipad (and sanitizer) for those without mobile access.
