Welliminati unite for a Casually Deliberate, no-drop ride to celebrate the life of @itburns, a friend we unfortunately never met. This is also to show our support for the itburns Memorial Cogal taking place at Westpoint, NY, later the same day.

Shake off the winter blues for 130 (approx) kilometres. We’ll ride from Aro Valley, out to Whitemans Valley, across to and over Moonshine Road, through Whitby, then back to the city via Johnsonville and Ohariu Valley. I’’m guessing that few of us have done any distance work over winter, so I’m sure that the pace won’t be too hot for anyone.

Meet at Aro Valley Fish and Chip shop at 9:30am, whatever the weather. There are 2 cafes in the immediate vicinity for pre-ride espressos and snacks.

Distance: approx 130km

And beers afterwards, obviously

  1. I’m fluctuating between riding number 1 european made carbon, or number 2 european made steel on this. I like the idea of going classic kit and classic bike but know at about 120k on the third big climb of the day, no amount of casually deliberateness is going to compensate for pushing over 10kg of steel and leather up a long incline. Looking forward to it immensely,here’s hoping for good weather and a big turn out

  2. Arrrgh, When? What? Bugger? Must have known, put in 135km today, raise this glass…

  3. Sorry we missed you @piwa… a small turnout due to some regulars away or other commitments, but we had a good ride anyway. The wind was pretty nasty, forcing us to seek shelter on some climbs and backroads, but we did the Hutt Volk element justice. We named the Korokoro climb the “itburns Memorial Climb” and we were definitely feeling the burn from @rigid and @Pall’s tempo up it. Thanks to @BianchiDenti for organising and the guys for making it a hard and fast ride.
