A ride to the deep south, finishing up at the Muddy Waters for the compulsory FB feed and do nothing much.
Meet at 09:30 at the BP Solar on the Southern Motorway before Drury, for a 10:00 departure. From the BP the ride should be roughly 180km give or take, so you may want to gas up at the BP before we leave
We’ll head toward Drury, out to Mangitawhiri, through the Maramarua forest, down a bit further and around a bit into Rangiriri then up through Meremere into Mercer where the fatties will ascend upon the Muddy Waters Irish Pub.
We will have a designated ride leader and TEC, and will have a quick ride briefing before departure to sort out any regroup areas.
Would like to try and encourage when on a group ride, please if you can’t see the rider behind you, slow down a little until you can spot them in the distance. If we are turning off or turning at an intersection, please pull over when/where it is safe to do so and wait for those behind. It will eventually filter through to the front and the ride leader will slow down/stop and we will ultimately be regrouped on the fly.
See you there!
