The New Plymouth Frocks on Bikes group were back in action last week for a polka dot ride to commemorate Anzac Day.

About 30 people met at Te Rewa Rewa Bridge and rode to the Wind Wand and back to the Big Wave Cafe at East End.

Frock ladies Jen Harries and Bec Kapernick, who helped organised the ride, say the group gets together every now and then for themed rides.

Themes were mostly chosen to give people a chance to put a frock on, get on a bike and have a good time.

As part of the event cyclists made a gold coin donation to the Taranaki RSA.

New Plymouth teacher Marion Lapwood who joined the ride said it was great fun.

"There was a lot of positive and collective woman's energy," she said.

The Arthouse Cinema sponsored the ride and awarded the best-dressed cyclist two free tickets to a movie.

Anyone interested in joining should visit frocksonbikes.org or search for them on Facebook.
