An easy, slow, guided ride to Sumner. We will leave from Linwood Park and follow the newly-completed second stage of the Rapanui Shag Rock Cycleway. Then into the Charlesworth Reserve and on to Sumner via sections of the Christchurch Coastal Pathway.
As much as possible we will ride cycle paths and the major cycle routes, but some on-road riding will be necessary, so please cycle in single file.
Eating lunch at Sumner's Ocean Bar and Cafe (a Biketober Passport Destination) is an option before we return to Linwood via the same route. Or, pop your bike onto the Purple Line Metro bus back to the city.
