This week's picnic is our last one for 2023, and will be outside Good Books on Jessie Street. Share your favourite poem, or come listen to other's for a picnic with the spoken word. We'll be starting around 11am and finishing no earlier than 12:30pm. See you there!


Gravel Ride

9am, Saturday 16 December

Bicycle Junction

Come for a gravel ride. We think you might enjoy it! Meet at Bicycle Junction from 9am for filter coffee or tea. We’ll depart at 9:30am.

We’ll keep it simple first up, a gentle ride up Waimapihi trails to Hawkins Hill Radar Dome then a descent into red rocks. Emphasis is on a good time - so a casual pace will be employed 🙂.

Drum & Bays 02 Bike Rave - Canceled due to the weather.

2pm, Saturday 16 December

Sky Stadium

Ride the waterfront bays listening to Drum and Bass to Hataitai Beach for an optional swim. Bring a picnic! We’ll depart the Stadium at 2:20pm. Join in from anywhere along the waterfront as we come through if you like.

Next Cycle Wellington Meeting -  note the different day of the week than usual:

6pm Wednesday 7 February 2023
