Cycling group

Our members take turns organising a ride within the greater Auckland area for the first Wednesday of each month. Usually around 2-3 hours on cycling/shared paths and avoiding traffic wherever possible. There’s always time to consider local points of interest, both scenic and cultural. Many members are surprised at how many quiet and enjoyable rides there are around our city…from Orewa to Manukau….and we always stop somewhere for coffee and conversation as part of each excursion.

Annually we organise a 2-3 day trips further afield which is always great fun.

June 2022

A beautiful ride along the Pakuranga Rotary Path It was a19km round trip from Pamure bridge to Half Moon Bay

 

We skirted the edge of the Tāmaki Estuary and Whakaaranga Creek. Wonderful views along the Tāmaki River and of Maungarei (Mt Wellington) plus an encounter with a herons, oyster catchers, cormorants and kingfishers.

We rode a further 4kms from Half Moon Bay to Musik Point! What outstanding views of Rangitoto Island, Browns Island, Motuihe and Waiheke islands from Musik point.

 

This point has a most fascinating history. The old radio transmission station played a key role in the South Pacific campaign during WWII. In the late 1930's, Musick Point was one of five strategic locations for a national communications network that enabled commercial international aviation in New Zealand. It was named after American aviation pioneer, Captain Edwin Musick.
