New people to Nelson who are 20-40 years (and the older but young at heart), who don't really know anyone in the area should join this group. Possible meet ups for coffee / wines / walks / adventure for those people who enjoy socialising and want to know more people in the area. It's easier to get dates online than it is to make friends when you move to a new place! Let's change that here!
Ascertaining interest in a regular night ride activity. Riding in the dark with lights is very exciting and not as scary or difficult as it appears.
You’ll need to be a solid grade 2 rider and we’ll begin with riding familiar tracks in Codgers and Silvan. I’ll post the tracks in advance, so you can even go familiarise yourself with them in daylight.
The first couple of sessions will be for night-riding beginners so it would be great to have a few people to also help set up other people’s lights.
Lights can be bought on Trademe for about $40. I have a couple of spares to lend out for the first event. You must also bring a working head torch too (handy for when your riding light goes flat), a spare tube, a wind proof jacket and a warm layer of clothing.
I’ll post more details once I gauge the level of interest and ability.
