Bikes & Beers <13/01/2024>


A gentle introduction to the joy of gravel grinders with a number of café/bars to relax, rejuvenate and rest at.

We start at 11am in Christchurch.

This is a great introduction to gravel riding, it is flat 49ks with a bunch of singletrack sections, gravel, grass, mud, sand, a bit of highway and a number of quiet roads.

You will need to purchase your own beverages and food.

Distance – 49.5km
Elevation – 215m
Surface (approx.):
Paved – 65%
Unpaved – 35%

This will be a semi-supported, no drop, guided ride with three beverage stops and a café/bar at the start and at the finish.

Perfect for the person who hasn’t ridden on gravel before and wants to in a no pressure group. Or just a social play with friends new and old. It’s not a race!

Road bike, adventure bikes, fat bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes and everything in between welcome.
