For a month or so the CMBC has been running Weekly Nights Rides up Rapaki, and we've had people riding more or less every night it's been held.
There was a strong push at the AGM this year for getting more social rides organised - so it was decided to revive the weekly clubs rides!
Every Tuesday at 6:30pm the riders will leave from "The Brick Works" on Centaurus Road: Heading up Rapaki Track and back across the Traverse track before heading down to Centaurus road again.
Back at the Brickworks - every one is welcome to share a drink or two, warm up and have yarn about hubs, groupsets and the latest local hair raising rides. Just remember to bring a pair of trousers and shoes to change into - The Brick Works is a little posh. (But they haven't kicked us out yet...)
(The Brick Works are currently running a $12 Steak Meal promotion on Tuesdays and some CMBCers turn up soley for that)
Fitness Level ===========
As it's Winter we'd like people to be at least "slightly fit" and to have ridden Rapaki and the Transverse track more than a couple of times. (Mainly because it can be cold and wet out there at the moment and waiting round in the dark is can be a little.. well cold).
For those of you who want something less challenging... The CMBC are also running weekly rides through Bottle Lake aimed at beginners and people who have not ridden at night before - But more about this later....
