The Manukau Veterans Cycle Club holds organised group rides on Sundays.
The ride schedule and route maps are available to members via this website and the club’s private Strava group.
Our regular rides depart from a community hall where there is free parking and toilet facilities.
Stay for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat afterwards. $ 3 is payable per ride to cover hall hireage and refreshments.
Email us with your ride queries.
We organise monthly away rides for members (e.g Te Kauwhata, Clarks Beach, Parakai Springs, Rangiriri), which are usually followed by a shared barbeque or cafe lunch. Great fun!
