Big Cock Ride for Blue September

Saturday September 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

When people hear Carl Wells creates Strava Art (i.e. by riding a route that draws a picture on the Strava map), a fairly common reaction is ‘haha, you should draw a giant penis’. LOL.

One such conversation was overheard by Carl’s friend Tim, a fellow musician in the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. In a stroke (or two) of brilliance, he commissioned Carl on the spot to design what they’re calling the Big Cock Ride.

Tim survived a prostate cancer scare a few years back, and ever since he’s been putting on an excellent annual charity in support of Blue September. His annual event at the Red Rabbit Coffee Co is awesome: a live Blues Brothers band, delicious food and beer, with 100% of funds collected going to the charity. And this year – for the first time – it’ll be preceded by the Big Cock Ride.

Join the first annual Schlong-a-thon! Grab your bicycle and GPS, and join Carl in drawing the biggest cock’n’balls ever to disgrace the city of Auckland – and all in a good cause. Come together to be part of something huge!

Where, when and how to join in

Any rider ambitious enough to go the full length should be ready to ride from the Red Rabbit at 1pm on Saturday 29 September 2018.  You’ll arrive back at the cafe by around 3pm, just as the band and festivities begin.

To sign up and get involved, join the event pages on Strava and Facebook. 

The ride is about 30k and is recommended as suiting riders who use clip-in pedals and are comfortable riding in traffic.

Even if you can’t make it on the day, please consider supporting Blue September by donating to support this impressive effort!

Questions? Contact Carl.

Note from Carl: for artistic purposes, the actual route will differ very slightly from image above, as there is no straight line route through Grey Lynn. But, when using a GPS computer, if you pause it mid-ride and resume at a different location, the software (on Strava) draws a straight line between the two points. Hence the two straight lines in the ‘art’.  Between marking those points, we conveniently ride up the Nelson St protected bike lane, Lightpath, and the Northwestern Cycleway. On the return route, after completing the ‘nuts’, we come back on the NW cycleway again, and down the Grafton Gully. Tricks of the trade!
