Term 2: Night Riding!!
*Term 1 2018 is currently underway (see below for locations)
Night Riding- BOOK HERE (link will open 8am, 10 April)*
*We are using a new booking system this time! The link above will take you to the bookings page where you will be able to choose your session (Tuesdays or Wednesdays in May or June).
The days are getting shorter (and a bit wetter!), but luckily we have night riding! This 4 week coed programme for 10-12 year olds takes us all around Wellington! 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. If you have one then great! 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
Ride 2- Polhill
Ride 3- Mt. Victoria
Ride 4- Miramar
Cost: $125 (for 4 x 2 hour sessions)

Why different locations?
We do this to try new trails and mix it up for parents that are driving across town. Different locations start in week 3 to give a bit of time for parents to meet each other and organise carpooling :)
