An easy 200kms as we get closer to the middle of the year. And only 2,529 metres of climbing.
This ride will be run at a slower paced group ride. If you would like to give the 200 a go, we will ride as a group, and have decent stops. We will wait for stragglers, and have everyone finish together. If you can do 120kms+ this is the one for you.
Starting at the Shorecare Pharmacy, on The Blvd, Smales Farm Park.
The course heads North West towards Kaukapakapa, and then out past Helensville, out to Shelly Beach. We will stop for lunch on the way back at Helensville, the 93km mark. After lunch, we will continue back to Dairy Flat, and head out towards Riverhead, Kumeu, and then a loop round Taupaki and Waitakere. Returning through Kumeu, we will stop again at the Riverhead Tavern, on Queen street (172kms). It's then a short 30km ride back to Smales Farm Park
Start time will be a leisurely 7.30am. Note the later start time. So it isn't too dark.
Time limit for the ride will be 13.5 hours.
