CHANGE OF PLAN! The cycle-powered cinema has moved to New Lynn Community Centre. So *we won’t be doing group ride from Te Atatu*. It’s too hairy and too far for an all-abilities group ride. But still go to the event and support it! Will be good fun!
Roll on Te Whau Pathway which will (eventually) give us a safe route to New Lynn.
Let’s ride together to the EcoWest Festival cycle-powered cinema in Avondale.
We’ll meet at Te Atatu Peninsula Library verandah at 5.30pm for a 5.45pm departure, we’ll pick up any Te Atatū South bicyclists at Te Atatu underpass at 6pm.
We’ll go off the road almost all the way via the NW cycleway and Waterview path to Avondale. There’s a very small amount of back-street riding once we get to Avondale.
You’ll be able to make your own way back in your own time or come back with other riders if you aren’t so confident to do that.
There’s heaps going on: live music, art and performances, food trucks and bike-powered screenings of locally made short films.
BYO mug for a free hot chocolate.
Ride is suitable for most ages and abilities – it’s about 11.5km (fairly flat) and it should take us between 40 minutes and an hour.
