Frocks’ Westie Explore

June 16, 2015

Those Frocks-on-Bikes girls are at it again. As always, if you want a no-stress ride with some of the friendliest people on two wheels, tag-along on their Western adventure.
Don’t let the 1-1.5 hrs total riding time put you off – these scenic cycleways are mostly flat and the Frockers ride at a leisurely pace. Just the ticket if you have an “upright” bike and aren’t some kind of lycra-encased fitness fanatic.

Brompton cyclist Christine Sabin of West Auckland has trialled this easy grade cycle loop for us which explores some of the twin stream gems of the west.  The full loop is about 2.5 hours (1-1.5 total riding) and includes the following hot-spots and off-road / pathway riding:

 – Oratia Stream Cycleway
– 30-minutes at the Oratia Farmers Market / Artisan Wines / Packing Shed cafe
– Opanuku Stream Walk and cycleway
– 30-minutes at Coffee Studio, Corbans Estate and Art Gallery
– Through Henderson and then looping back to the Oratia Stream to arrive back at Sunnyville Train Station.
The ride departs 9.45 from Sunnyvale Park.  If you live near the western line, the 8.54 Britomart train arrives at Sunnyvale at 9.35am.  If you are not near a train station, car-pool with a friend with a bike rack or drop Christine or Frocks a line.  Christine also has a couple of bikes to loan. Contact her via or phone / text 027 494 9073.  Yeehaa!
