What to Expect on ACTA Rides
Rides are at an average of 15 to 20 km depending on the terrain – plus generous stops.
There are club rides on both Saturday and Sunday each week. Both of these rides start at 9 am and the Saturday ride usually finishes at about midday and the Sunday ride between 3 pm and 4 pm. The starting point of our Saturday and Sunday rides will vary depending on the routes taken.
During the week there is a Wednesday ride that starts at Kumeu at 9.30 am and these rides are between 35km and 55km in length usually finishing about 3 pm. On these rides, the destination is decided on the day. On the first Wednesday of each month, there is usually an additional Wednesday ride that starts from the Ferry Building downtown.
