Over the winter months we invite all young riders (10-13 years of age) and their parents to join us on our Sunday bunch rides.
Rides will include some basic skills training (in the carpark and out on the road) to help you improve your bike handling ability, defensive cycling skills, and bunch riding techniques.
Riders are generally aged around 10-13 years, but anyone new to cycling – who doesn't have a group to ride with – is welcome to join us. Parents are welcome to participate in these rides too.
Rides can be adapted to suit newbies who only want to do 17km, but for those who want to we can continue for up to 35km. Our beginner rides include basic defensive road riding skills.
Riders are generally aged around 12-13 years, but anyone relatively new to cycling – who doesn't have a group to ride with – is welcome to join us. Parents are welcome to participate in these rides too.
Rides are generally 35km-50km long, depending on the day.
We meet each Sunday at 8:30am in the Evans Bay Marina car park (near the wind wand). We'll do some skills training first, and then break into two groups (beginners and intermediates). Allow 1.30-2hrs total, as we aim to be back at the carpark by 10:30am.
Most riders use road bikes, but contact Gary if you want to discuss this or to find out about rental road bikes if you don't have one.
Bring snacks with you for eating on the go.
Updates are put on the juniors Facebook page and rides may be changed to an indoor spin session in Hataitai Park if raining.
