Northcote to Devonport Return – a guided ride
March 18, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 amFree
This guided bike ride – brought to you by the friendly folk of your local Bike Kaipatiki bike burb – is aimed at people who are already confident at riding and who are looking for a relaxed ride with good company.
Most of the route will be on shared paths or cycleways, with the majority of the road sections on quieter back streets.
Date: Sunday 18th March 8am – 11am
Duration: Starting from the Northcote Library at 8am, and returning approximately 3 hours later to the same place, with a coffee/ice-cream stop at Devonport.
Route: We will ride out from Ernie Mays Street to find the Akoranga Drive shared path. We will follow the path along Esmonde Road before crossing into Eldon Street. From here, we follow the green route in to Devonport – with stunning views of the city and harbour as we cross through parks on our way down the peninsula.
What to know: Riders should be comfortable riding the distance/time described above and keeping up a reasonable yet relaxed pace with others around them.
What to bring: You will need a road-legal bicycle, ready to go (tires pumped, brakes working), helmet, money for coffee/ice-cream (optional), water, sunscreen, and appropriate clothing (keeping in mind it is Auckland).
