This is the FINAL B&B Westside of 2019 – do not miss out!
This time, we’re heading to Little Creatures in Hobsonville Point on Saturday 7 December. Note: we meet at the venue from 5.30pm; the guided ride to the venue sets off at 4:15pm.
Disclaimer: please be responsible, if you’re planning to drink a lot, please use public transport instead. You are most welcome to come and talk bikes without your bike!
A guided group ride for Westies and/or cycle purists (i.e. no ferry) begins at 4:15pm at the Northwestern Shared Path – Te Atatu Underpass, where the Northwestern Shared path goes under Te Atatu Rd. You can make your own way there and join the guided ride!
Note that this ride will have a significant amount of on-road riding, but we will go at the pace of the lowest rider. However, we recommend a moderate fitness level and/or e-bike. See map below.
Note: the guided ride is one-way. If you’re not comfortable riding back alone, please ask someone and they may be able to ride back with you. We often ride back together at the end of the event.
If you can’t join the guided ride, feel free to make your own way there. Some of us should still be there until at least 9:00pm, and the venue closes at 10:00pm.

Note: There is one later ferry, but it’s at 11:15PM, and the venue closes at 10:00PM. So we recommend you leave the venue no later than 9:00PM if you’re catching the ferry back to town!
