Twelve bikes from the group went on an overnight ride from Christchurch to the West Coast and return. Despite the reputation of the Coast for inclement weather the group made it across the Main Divide in fine conditions.
A highlight was the stretch of road from Springs Junction through to Reefton. This is a well maintained road with a series of sweeping bends and a few twists and dips that were simply great fun to ride. The experience of riding in a line of well maintained classic machinery snaking around bends and through fantastic scenery made for excellent memories.
