All rides start at 8:00am at Memorial Park, Napier Rd, Palmerston North.

There is usually a choice of faster or slower groups to suit all abilities.

Riding in a bunch can be the most enjoyable experience if done in the right way. However, bunch riding can also be a huge pain if people in the group don’t understand the rules.
