I realize this is late notice – but hey – I knew you would all know this was happening (Yeah right!).

As with last year we will revisit the cycleway through to Paekakariki – it’s not a fast ride and the outlook is lovely. We can tootle at leisure.

From there – return to Raumati and wend our way north to Waikanae, Peka Peka, and Te Horo if we feel the urge.

Coffee at Long Beach – I’ll make sure they know we’ll be arriving and can handle the ‘hordes’. 

Here are the specifics:

  • 8AM Coastlands (outside Farmers)
  • Ride through to Poplar Ave and onto the cycleway
  • Once in Paekakariki we’ll ‘do a loop’ one way or the other before heading back to the cycleway
  • From the cycleway exit we’ll follow the coast roads (Rosetta etc. through Manly) to Otaihanga
  • Normal route to Peka Peka and, if we’re keen, on to Te Horo Beach
  • Come back to Waikanae and make our way to Long Beach for a well-earned (kind of) coffee
  • This will be around the 50 to 65km mark (depending on whether we make it to Te Horo)

The pace will be easy with the emphasis on chatting, relaxing and having a bit of fun.

Decorations of bike and/or person (and carrying of Christmas cake) are optional but encouraged.

Hope to see you there and have a lovely Christmas day.
