    Christchurch protest ride - Dec 5th

    Christchurch protest ride
    Saturday Dec 5th

    Register your attendance here.


    Alright folks here it is, December the 5th there will be a protest ride starting from Izone Drive in Rolleston (there will be marshals to direct you to the start point) meeting from 10.30am.

    The reason we are starting in Rolleston is that hopefully the Timaru and Ashburton riders will be attending.
    We will be leaving around 12.00pm heading down Main South Rd, left into Main South Rd from the Sockburn roundabout, Riccarton Rd, Hagley Ave, Oxford Tce, Lichfield St then left into Manchester st, then left into cashel st and finishing in the city mall. There we will be met by a few MPs and others.

    It is time to step up the protest and make some noise, yes traffic will be held up but we have to start making ourselves heard and seen, we have done the quiet protest now it is time to show the Christchurch public we are not happy.

    I am also thinking of getting the learner riders and the scooters up front doing about 70kmh. This will still be legal as the police still won't help out but I am trying to get a meeting with the area commander for transport and say help out. I have heard there are some bikes with hazard lights if there is I need one to go right up front with hazards on, it would have to be a fairly experienced rider, if that is you can you PM me please so we can touch base and finalise it.

    I have e-mailed all the clubs I can think of I will be heading to some bike shops to hand out up posters and have got in touch with some contacts in the media, so what I am hoping and expecting is that we can do better then the last rally's as far as numbers is concerned. If you have t-shirts and banners then bring them and wear them, signs on your bike wouldn't be a bad thing either. If anybody is keen we should head to the Wheatsheaf for a get together after the rally.

    Good on you, I will come. I don't want to put a fly in your soup but, you can't turn left from Lichfield Street onto Colombo Street. There is a no left turn sign there. Maybe go left at Oxford Terrace past the strip then onto Hereford Street then into Cathedral Square?

    Cheers.

    I get the point of having learners and scooters up front but I have reservations about having the 'L' platers, who by definition are inexperienced, leading a hopefully very large ride.

    Also a bit concerned about some of the scooteratti needing to proceed at 70kph outside of town when some of them (and their bikes) may be quite unaccustomed to that speed. How were they catered for at the Bikoi?

    Would it be an option for scooters to perhaps meet with the larger group at say Templeton and then lead the way in from there because there's nothing but a lack of self discipline preventing the larger group from proceeding at say 80kph from Rolleston to Templeton without having to have slow vehicles in front?

    Just my 10 cents worth.

    I don't mind 10 cents worth it all helps for the day, yeah you are probably right, i may lead it myself that way we can keep an eye on the less experienced, all learners and scooters are welcome otherwise how else do you get the experience riding in a group.

    Isn't there already a protest ride on the 5th of december?

    Please keep in mind that people riding 50cc modeds will not be able to achieve 70 km h, probably more like 50-60

    There was a suggestion somewhere about a vintage or veteran bike club of some sort doing something but I think that was when it was thought that John Key was coming to town.

    We are using these to great effect up here.

    Pm one of the senior mods too, and ask for them to put this on the sticky list at the top of the forum.

    Funny you should say that we just bought one $89 plus batteries (cos everything good needs batteries eh)

    I have a big mouth and can throw my voice a fair way, I just did not to be faced with a bigger crowd than we got last weekend at a venue where the wind could be a factor. Get stuck in, the power of the people is strong in you

    they will

    definitly hear us, they have left us with no choice, it sounds like there are going to be a few MPs, funny thing is that no national MPs are willing to show there face.
