An explore of the Wainuiomata Trail Park MTB tracks, including the Jungles set. If the mood is right and the weather is good we might then do Mt Lowry, but otherwise continue with WTP and some combination of Labyrinth, Towai Traverse, Freewheel, Spoonhill, 491, Snails, and the Bee line.

There is some wild-haired plan (clearly not mine) to _not_ do the Horika St loop - but, you know the drill, we'll make it up on the night.

Ride type: Wednesday

Meet at Kate Sheppard Place - The short street opposite Parliament between Molesworth and Mulgrave Streets by the Back Bencher Pub

Date : Sunday 8th July 9:00 am

Ride type: Sunday

Meet at the Ian Galloway park, off Curtis St and opposite the school.

Depending on numbers and the weather, we may shuttle to Porirua and head back via Skyline. Alternatively, we may just head up to Skyline via Karori cemetery.



Location : Korokoro Stream, Petone

Date : Wednesday, 11th July 6:30 pm

Ride type: Wednesday

Meet at the end of Cornish Street - Petone. From Wellington, Cornish Street is on the left immediately after going under the Petone off ramp. From the Hutt take the Korokoro Cres overpass off the Hutt Rd and then drive down Pito-One Rd (remember, you can't turn right into Cornish St from Western Hutt Rd anymore).

View Larger Map

An explore of the repaired Korokoro stream track. It'll be interesting to see what the status of it is. If the weather is good and the legs are willing, we might go up to the trig, but there are also some other ideas floating around.



Location : Something around Porirua, perhaps Whitby

Date : Wednesday, 18th July 6:30 pm

Ride type: Wednesday

Meet: at the ANZ building, Hagley St in central Porirua.

We'll decide on the night but if all else fails there's always Colonial Knob to suffer...



Location : Belmont, Boulder Hill - a long special ride

Date : Sunday, 22nd July, several hours

Ride type: Sunday Special

Meet at the Belmont Memorial Hall, off Fairway Drive and next to the Belmont School. From the Motorway, take the Avalon exit onto Fairway Drive and then take the next right.

The plan is to do a long special ride starting with a climb up Boulder Hill, and then something else.



Location : Miramar, North

Date : Wednesday, 25th July 6:30 pm

Ride type: Wednesday Wander

Meet at the Strathmore Local Pub, 3/5 Strathmore Ave, Strathmore Park

View Larger Map

Another chance to give Steve an enjoyable ride out in Miramar. Depending on the weather and how Graeme feels on the night this might change, but the plan is to head north (and probably including a loop or two of Conviction, Jailbrake, Repeat Offender etc).



Location : Paekak, Over The Hill

Date : Wednesday, 1st August 6:30 pm

Ride type: Wednesday

Meet at the old Petrol station at the bottom of the Paekakariki Hill Rd.

View Larger Map

If coming via Paekakariki Hill Rd, turn left at the bottom of the hill and the old Petrol station will be immediately on your left. If taking SH1, the old petrol station will be on your right just before Paekakariki. Steve will take us on a merry ride taking in the delights that Paekakariki has to offer and experience what it's like to be Over The Hill...

Ride Leader: Steve Meeres

 



Location : Orongorongo, 5 mile Track + BBQ. NOTE: CLUB MEMBERS ONLY RIDE!

Date : Wednesday, August 8th, 6:30pm

Ride type: Wednesday

From the Hutt, travel through Wainuiomata and head south toward the coast.
Meet at the workshop on the Coast Road just before the main gate, Rimutaka Forest Park, Coast Road, Wainuiomata.
Don't park in front of the fire doors!
Note that it takes at least 30mins from Hutt Central, so be sure to leave with plenty of time.

View Larger Map

This popular walking track is normally off limits to mountain bikers but we have special limited permission to ride it for one night - for Club members only. It gradually climbs through native bush to the Orongorongo River and will be ridden "there and back" from the carpark.
After the ride we'll have a few bevvies & a BBQ so be sure to bring that spare brontosaurus steak hiding at the bottom of your freezer to slap on the grill, plus your portable pub (or something more suitable)!
Note that due to the special permission we have, this is a club members only ride, so be sure that you've paid your membership (although there will be a limited number of membership forms for those that would like to join on the night (only $25!)).
