Birkenhead – Mission Bay Ice Cream Ride
Sunday January 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
This guided bike ride is aimed for people who ride currently, and who are looking for a relaxed ride on a relatively level path with great views and good company.
We will be catching the ferry to the Downtown Ferry Building, meeting for a briefing where the NextBike hire bikes are on Queen’s Wharf. From there we’ll head east along the Quay Street Cycleway and Tamaki Drive to Mission Bay (or Okahu Bay if time will not permit a longer ride). Total distance is about 14kms.
All of the journey will be on protected cycleways or shared paths (share with care). There will be a few road crossings to navigate.
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 summer in Auckland.
