Our Froctober feature ride will take us out to Spencerville and the Brooklands Red Zone area.

Matt, our ride leader for the day has planned a long (1 hour 40 min) and a short (1 hour) option, so most ride abilities will be catered for. We will all ride together out to Brooklands Red Zone with a stop along Styx river to hear a bit about the river and the monthly water quality testing being done by volunteers from The Styx trust.

From there those keen for a longer ride will do a roundtrip to Kainga, while the rest will leisurely make our way back to Spencer park where we will all meet up for a well deserved BYO picknick.

Bring a blanket and your own picnic to enjoy in Spencer Park after the ride, or money to buy an ice cream, food or drink from the small Spencer Park cafe.

Please see link above for Metroinfo Journey planner, if you plan to take your bike to the starting point or return by bus. Unfortunately, bus 150 has no service Labour Monday, so your closest choices are the B Blue line (on Saturday timetable to cnr Spencerville Rd/Main North Rd) or O Orange line (on Saturday timetable to Broadhaven Ave by Broadhaven Reserve south of Bottle Lake Forest park).

Dress theme: Celebrate Spring or something you feel comfortable in and that suites the weather on the day.

All are welcome on this ride. Children need to be cyclewise and under supervision of a responsible adult. 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 relating to this ride.

If the weather is decidedly nasty on the day this event will be cancelled. See the Facebook event page (link above) for updates on the day.

Hope to see you and any frocking friends and family you can muster for an enjoyable few hours of cycling.
