Hi Guys
The THIRD great Canaan / Rameka ride is on!

We had a hoot last time, and if you haven't done it yout this is a great chance to be shown it!
Below is the video of the First ride we did up there (ran out of memory before we did the Rameka part, so will film that part this time!

When? Saturday 25th of August 2012.

Who? Anyone who wants to come!

What WillYou Need? $35 Cash for Shuttle, Food, Bike, Appropriate Clothing

The ride itself will probably be as follows.
We will ride up to Wainui Saddle and around the first half of the loop to
the bottom of the big hill. Those that don't want to do the big hill can
turn off here and head back to the carpark via the Gold Creek Loop while the rest of us go over the hill and back to the carpark.
Once at the carpark, anyone who wants to can ride the Gold Creek Loop or
rest and have a break / lunch
at about 1:30 we will head down the Rameka and Project loops aiming to be in Takaka by around 3:30 - 4.00pm
As there will be different levels of fitness / skill we will probably split
into two groups of 8 to keep it cozy, or into whatever groups feel
