    This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. 

    In celebration of 100 years of randonneuring, randonneuring clubs around the world are holding a special 200km brevet ride on the 11th September, with a special medal available for finishers of the ride.

    The Auckland version of the event will start in front of the Auckland museum, at 7am.

    It will take in the light path, and head west on the cycleway to Te Atatu, bfore Heading out West Through Henderson onto the Opanuku Stream Cycle and Walkway. The course then takes Candia Road to Swanson and heads out towards Waitakere, and onto Kumeu. From Kumeu, the course heads up Ridge Road to Albany Heights, and north onto SH31.

    A right turn at the northern base of the Albany Hill, onto Durey Road, take us to East Coast Road, to continue the Northern trail. A left onto Wilkes Road, and a dog leg onto Kahikatea Flats road, leads us towards Helensville, where a short loop around the back of Hellensville, gets us to the halfway mark of the ride.

    After a restful lunch at Helensville, we head back to Dairy Flat, and up the Albany Hill. At the top of the hill, we turn left onto Albany Heights Road, and then right onto East Coast Road.

    From East Coast Road, we head west at Sunnynook, onto Sunset Road, and head to West Harbour. At West Harbour, we reconnect with the North Western Cycle path and follow it back into Waterview.
