What we're about

Friendly welcoming group. New to experienced riders regardless of race, faith, gender, profession, sexual preference, political leanings, age etc. A good mix makes for interesting coffee chats. It is OK to be shy or the quiet one.
We are responsible road users who consider the comfort and safety of others. This doesn't mean we don't like to go a little quicker when appropriate.
Affiliate: To further provide options join the Facebook Group 'Born Bikers NZ'. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1927188034005144/ . I am a member. I do post the events/rides in both places. BBNZ are highly social, inclusive, supportive to learners and safe.

LEARNERS ARE WELCOME. The preference is that you have completed the RideForever Bronze course and/or can safely travel at the posted speed limits where conditions permit in a group. They key is to reach out to the ride organiser in advance so we can plan and buddy up where required.
