The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

10 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
If it's raining, I won't be there.
Meeting Point: 

to be advised


Shuttle is booked and all 8 places are now taken. Unfortunatly we were unable to get the second shuttle as its been booked for another trip
However if you are still keen to do this ride Petra looks to be taking her van up to the Flora Carpark to do a ride in / ride out option.
It may be possible if we have enough cars at the other end to get a coupld more through and back to Nelson, so if your keen let me know and I'll see what magic I can work. As the rest of us are paying for the shuttle if we manage this it would be great if you could contribute to costs.

So.. Plan is this

We will arrange car pooling closer to the time once we know the full extent of the party coming but we will all drive over to Motueka where passengers can offload for a coffee while drivers take vehicles across to Upper Takaka and park them there and meet the Shuttle at 8:30am
Shuttle will then take us back over the hill, pick up the coofee set on the way through Mot and have us up at Flora Saddle by about 9:30 - 10:00
Petra will meet us there in her van with whoever else wants to come and we will ride through to upper Takaka. Petra will turn back at Barron flat and ride back up to Flora Saddle (either that or someone may be able to take her back to her van if she comes through)

The ride through will take us anywhere from 4-6 hours depending on state of track and party fitness so we should be back at the cars by 4 at the lastest and back to Nelson by 6ish

The party of 8 for the shuttle comprise of

Steve Newport
Mike Merrick
Nigel Schroder
Kerri Schroder
Mark Holmes
Juliet Westbury
Jeremy Feasey
David Bonnet

In Petra's Van so far

Possibly Rowan Watson
