Love to Roll 2011 – The Valentine’s Day Ride

Media Reminder – Frocks on Bikes Valentine’s Day Ride

Love to Roll 2011 – The Valentine’s Day Ride

10 February 2011

Wellington women are being reminded to glam up and make a date for Sunday’s Frocks on Bikes special Valentine’s Day ride.

The Love to Roll 2011 ride from Oriental Bay to the Island Bay Festival aims to celebrate love and the freedom of two wheels. There are great prizes to be won for those who register – a Mamachari bike, dinner for two at Duke Carvell's, Paramount double movie passes and a clothing gift voucher from Emma Collections. Prize categories are Best-Dressed Couple (any combination), Most Awesome Bike and Most Chic Lover to Roll.

Isabella Cawthorn from Frocks on Bikes says last year’s ride attracted 151 “lovers to roll”, plus one dog, and this year they are hoping for many more.

‘It’s a fun and funky day out for Valentine’s Day, so come along dressed for a date. We encourage ladies to bring significant others, as well as friends, and have a fantastic time.’

Love to Roll will begin at Oriental Bay, near Freyberg Pool and then head around the bays through Kilbirnie to Lyall Bay. There will be a muster stop outside the iconic Maranui Café and a judging session en route. The ride will finish at the Island Bay Festival where prize winners will be announced and spot prizes can be won.

Isabella says the aim of the day is to show how much fun you and your date can have on two wheels – and all while looking great.

‘Hopping on a bike is such a win-win for anyone and you don't need special clothes or to be a sporty person to enjoy the benefits. You can cycle in whatever you like to wear – even a glamorous frock and heels!’

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.
