We know, it's winter. But that's not going to stop us getting out there and cycling on to enjoy ourselves and get the circulation going!

So, our August ride will take us to not one, but two Farmers Markets. We will cycle through part of the city centre, admiring one or two Street Art paintings along the way, and onwards through some of Sydenham and St. Matins' lovely residential streets to the Opawa Farmers' Market. Here we will spend about 45 minutes browsing through the local produce on sale and maybe enjoy an organic hot drink or homemade food/cake at the Willows Cafe. Then we cycle back, via more lovely residential streets, to the Downtown Farmers Market @ The Commons for another opportunity to secure some organic vegetables, quality salami, relax with coffee or maybe try a gourmet stone oven pizza for lunch.

Start: 10 am, Sunday 16 August.

Finish: around 1.30 pm.

Meeting place: The Commons, cnr Kilmore St & Durham St North.
Please see Metro Journey Planner if you plan to take your bike into town by bus (no extra cost for your bike). Or you want to take the bus back to town from Opawa Farmers Market.

Dress theme: As usual this is optional. But it would be great to see something in the spirit of Farmers Market.... Warm woollen coat and gumboots for both women and men or something more glamorous for the ladies like a nice winter dress or skirt if the weather is good to us. And a basket or wooden crate will also be handy to transport those essential purchases from the markets.

This ride is free and open for all. Children are very welcome, but need to be cyclewise and under the supervision of a responsible adult. This ride is on public roads and all participants are responsible for their own safety, so if you are new to cycling or not comfortable crossing roads, please let us know before we head off.

Please contact Connie on 021 0277 9250 if you have any queries/input relating to this ride.

If the weather is decidedly nasty on the day this event will be postponed to Sunday 23 August - see Frocks on Bikes Christchurch facebook page for updates the day before.

Hope to see you, your friends and family for an enjoyable ride to the markets on Sunday 16 August ;-)
