December 17 - Beach Haven to the City via Hobsonville and NW Cycleway

Meeting at Shepherds Park in Beach Haven at 8:00am, returning to Bayswater/ Northcote Point/ Birkenhead on the 11:40am Ferry from downtown.

This guided bike ride is aimed for looking for a longer ride and/or are curious about how to get from the North Shore to the Northwestern Cycleway.

Most of the journey will be on cycle paths and once on the Northwestern Cycleway at Lincoln Road we don't need to interact with traffic for the rest of the journey to the Ferry Building except for a short section through the Viaduct Harbour. For the route you should expect some will be on shared paths (share with care), there will be on road cycle paths, separated cycle paths and small sections on road.

At all times the group will be controlled by ride marshals. We ask that you follow their instructions as they have been tasked with ensuring the group gets to the destination on time, safely and with smiles intact. If you wish to leave the group along the way that is acceptable but please notify one of the marshals.

Riders should be comfortable riding on the road, riding the distance described above and riding hills. You will need a road legal bicycle, helmet, your hop card or cash for your ferry fare, water, sunscreen and appropriate clothing keeping in mind it is spring in Auckland.

 

What to bring:

  • Your AT HOP card or ferry fare
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Money for coffee
  • A roadworthy bike
  • Your helmet
  • Enclosed footwear
  • Sunscreen
  • A jacket
  • A sense of adventure and your smile

  

We will be departing at 8:00am sharp from Shepherds park, outside the Soccer Club here:
