    Every year we hold this classic ride and with a bloody good reason:  Its a classic.  Its got everything a classic should have: long climbs - twisty technical descents, cafes, pies, quiet rural roads in blistering heat, followed by the sunset over Kapiti, and a little bump over a quiet mountain road to get back to Upper Hutt.    

    2 sets of lights and reflective jacket are essential.
