Sunday Morning social rides – These rides leave from outside Farmers, Tuwharetoa Street (Next to McDonalds drivethru) Taupo. Start time from Sunday 2nd September is 8am sharp! There are 2 groups available, a slower group with average speed 20-25kmph distance approximately 40-50km, or faster group, average speed 26-30kmph, distance between 70-100+ km. We will regroup at designated points along the way. Please remember to bring 2 water bottles, food, spare tube & pump and most importantly some $ for a coffee at the end of the ride. The Fern cafe in the Suncourt courtyard is a great spot plenty of places to park the bike, plenty of seating and is very sheltered.

These rides are a great way to experience the beauty of our district, and its always more fun riding with a group. These rides are a social pedal, not a race, which gives cyclists an opportunity to gather together for a pleasant Sunday morning ride. All visitors are welcome.

Both of these rides are designed to finish at approx 10.30am thanks to Fern cafe, Suncourt Plaza, Tamamutu Street, for coffee, please bring $ for this.

Everybody is welcome.
