Term 2 2017 (9 May- 28 June)
Bookings for Term 2 Night Riding are now open!
Night Rides- 10-12 year olds co-ed!
The days are getting shorter (and a bit wetter!), but luckily we have night riding! This 4 week co-ed programme for 10-12 year olds takes us all around Wellington! These rides are all about the adventure- it will be more tips along the way, and less formal skills sessions like in Term 1 and 4. To really enjoy these adventure rides, kids need to be at an intermediate-advanced skill and fitness level- able to ride to the top of Makara Peak and down- with a couple of snack breaks of course!
Since we will be riding in the dark, kids will also need specific night riding lights….these are different from commuting lights. Thanks to a grant, we were able to purchase night lights!! We will have 10 sets for each programme available to borrow. Please indicate on your registration form if you will need to borrow a set for the sessions.
This 4 week programme will be from 4.30-6.30pm meeting at different locations each week:
Ride 1- Makara Peak MTB Park (South Karori Road, Main MTB carpark)
Ride 2- Polhill Reserve (Bottom of Transient trail- Aro Street, just before Halloway Road, Aro Valley)
Ride 3- Mt. Victoria (Pirie Street Playground, top of Pirie Street, next to the bus tunnel)
Ride 4- Miramar (Bottom of Conviction trail- across the street from 241 Darlington Road, Miramar)
Cost: $125 (for 4 x 2 hour sessions and includes lights, wahoo!)
