Hey guys and girls!

I’m about 4 months into my first ADV bike and looking for other riders around CHCH that would be keen to ride together?

My skill set is a bit on the shit side as I’m still learning and don’t have a left hand so can’t do extremely technical stuff the requires lots of clutch work/feathering..
Been on heaps of gravel tracks in/around Banks Peninsula and an overnight trip in a forest on the coast so far and keen for more!

At the moment I ride solo (other mates only have road bikes) and I’m thinking it would be more fun with company – safer too!
As i’m teaching myself and still got lots to learn. So, when I’m solo (which is always, at the moment) I don’t want to push it very much or go too remote incase I get stuck or come undone..
Also, would be rad to get tips from others on how to be better on the bike or just someone to chin-wag with at the stops.

Long story short; 27yo dude, Looking for riding buddies for afternoon/day/weekend trips.

As much as I tried to avoid it, when reading this back I get a ‘dating site’ vibe from this.. Not my intention! at least buy me a tank of gas first..
