The 2015 Canscoot Show Weekend Ride:
(12)/13-15 Nov

Craig lead the charge on this year’s ride, the “North of the South”. Thanks for sorting it out and herding the cats. Click one of the pics below to see the photos of the ride. Thanks to Simon and Craig for the photos.


The Plan

Day 1, Friday 13th ( what could possibly go wrong): Start at Kaikoura, e.g; those from Chch travel up the night before or early in the morning, (some may even take the Thursday off work as well and make a day of it). Those from North Island can meet us there - or in Blenheim.

End point for the day will be Havelock via Blenheim, Port Underwood, Picton and Queen Charlotte Drive. There are sealed options for those wanting to avoid the gravel.

Probable evening ride out to Portage for dinner and drinks via the Kenepuru Rd out around Kenepuru sound. (80km round trip from Havelock)

Day 2, Saturday 14th: End point for the day is Murchison via Pelorus Bridge, Nelson, Kaiteriteri, Tapawera, Glenhope to Murchison.

Day 3, Sunday 15th: North Island Folk head home via Nelson Lakes to Blenheim etc.
Christchurch people head home.

Here is a map of the planned route.
