Motorcycle Riders rejoice!!! Beatnik is organising a ride to celebrate the opening of the SH1 between Blenheim and Kaikoura.
An opportunity to come together and a enjoy a great day out on 2 wheels riding the incredible coastal route with stunning scenery, winding roads, sunshine and comradery.
We will be gathering at the starting point which will be the Beatnik parking lot, 49 mainstreet, starting at 9:30 am and set out at 10:30 am. Coffee van available on site so you can get your coffee fix. We will ride from Beatnik to Clarence where we will take a 20-30 min break to allow the group to gather up again before heading down to Kaikoura.
In Kaikoura we will end the ride at The Pier Hotel where riders can enjoy some lunch (at own expense) with a great view of the ocean and some good photo ops. At this point its 'every person for them selves' as many riders may want to spend some time in Kaikoura doing some whale watching, shopping or just enjoying the town while others may head back to Blenheim.
