Westie Explore Ride with Frocks on Bikes
A leisurely meander around some westward attractions (farmers market, cafes, art galleries) in the company of bike-friendly gals and their pals. Frocks not compulsory!
Brompton cyclist Christine Sabin of West Auckland has trialled this easy grade cycle loop for us which explores some of the twin stream gems of the west. The full loop is about 2.5 hours (1-1.5 total riding) and includes the following hot-spots and off-road / pathway riding:
– 30-minutes at the Oratia Farmers Market / Artisan Wines / Packing Shed cafe
– Opanuku Stream Walk and cycleway
– 30-minutes at Coffee Studio, Corbans Estate and Art gallery
– Through Henderson and then looping back to the Oratia Stream to arrive back at Sunnyville Train Station.
The ride departs 9.45 from Sunnyvale Park. If you live near the western line, the 8.54 Britomart train arrives at Sunnyvale at 9.35am. If you are not near a train station, carpool with a friend with a bike rack, or email Christine or Frocks – Christine also has a couple of bikes to loan. Yeehaa!Rain date: Saturday 18th July.
