Wellington cyclists organised a Memorial Ride as a mark of respect for Brent Norriss, tragically killed on 3 February on Highway 2 near the BP station. We are deeply saddened.
We gathered at Parliament Lawn at 5:15pm, Monday 17 February 2020.
After a brief opportunity to speak, we departed at 5:30pm, rode along Thorndon Quay, Hutt Road, and gathered at the BP station to pay our respects.
We rode on to Petone, then back to Wellington.
Please wear red
Brent Norriss' family asked people wear red at the Memorial Ride on Monday. "Dad had a love of the colour red. A lot of his cycle clothing was red. Could you possibly ask riders to wear something red for Dad? It may be a ribbon, a flower, a t-shirt or even red socks but that would be really special."
Route: Parliament, Molesworth St, Aitken St, Mulgrave St, Thorndon Quay, Hutt Rd path, Ngauranga, Hutt Rd to BP site. Pause to lay flowers and a minute's silence to pay our respects.
Continue along Hutt Rd, over Petone overbridge and follow the path on the left to Honiana Te Puni park, by Petone Beach. Karakia.
