Road ride season 2014

Daylight savings is nearly here which can only mean one thing, the 2014 road riding season is about to begin!

Craig is running Sunday training day for novices who want to gain a bit of experience before joining the group. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.

Our first night will be Tuesday, 7 October. This is free and a very social outing to the Scout Lodge so a great opportunity to come and get a taste and meet some new friends without the huffing and puffing of racing.

Fees are $6 per race or $80 for the season. School students get it for half price.

All Wired Up are joining us again as sponsors and they'll be putting together a nice prize package again this year, thanks for the huge support Warrick and Carol.

Remember to keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for updates, as much as we hate to cancel a race sometimes the weather makes it unsafe, we'll always keep you posted.

We have a Race Programme you can print and pop on your fridge, please take the time to read it as it has some very important information to racing.

If you have any questions please jump on Facebook or contact us.

We hope to see you there.

Road ride meeting

What's a Club without plenty of meetings :) We're going to have our road riding season planning meeting on Tuesday, 26 August at the Solid Energy starting at 5.30pm.

If you would like a say on how we shape our road season or want to help us build on last years success please come along.

We welcome everyone to our meetings.


Event update

We are going to change the Rogaine/Treasure Hunt on Saturday (23rd) for a family ride on Charming Creek instead. A number of reasons but a big one is we are going to run this event in the summer school holidays to get a better than expected turn out. 

So, anyone keen to join us for a casual ride on Charming Creek next weekend we're going to leave from the car park at 10am and have lunch at the Charming Creek cafe afterwards. 

If you would like a ride out put a post on our Facebook page or flick me a text on 027 389 9733 and we'll see what we can do. 

Fingers crossed for good weather, we really want to make it happen this time

New event - Buller Banks Rogaine

Cyclone Ita may have dampened our Winter Cycle Festival but we're back! On Saturday, 23 August we'll be holding two events - something for the younger families and something for the older ones.
Family Treasure Hunt 
Working in teams, families will be riding around the Kawatiri Beach Reserve area in search of treasure, the team who finds the most treasure wins.
Cost: FREE
Where: Kawatiri Beach Reserve (at the very end of Derby Street) 
Ages: Teams can come in any shape or size, all that we ask is each team has at least one child under 12 and one adult or guardian
Registrations: On the day from 10am - 11:45am
Times: The hunt will go from 12 - 12:30pm 
Prizegiving: Will happen at Kawatiri Beach Reserve shortly after the event.

Buller Banks Rogaine
What's a rogaine I hear you ask? Working in teams you will be given a map with check points scattered around Westport. It will be up to your team to decide which check points you go to and in what order. You are aiming to build points for your team, the further away the check point is the more points you get.
Cost: Gold coin per person
Where: Based from Kawatiri Beach Reserve (at the very end of Derby Street) but you will be exploring the greater Westport area.
Categories: No categories and teams can come in any shape or size. The only thing we ask is that team members must be at least 10 old, and if a member is aged between 10 - 14 there is an adult in the team as well. 
Registrations: On the day from 10 - 10:45am
Event Start Time: 11am - 12.30pm
Prizegiving: Will happen at Kawatiri Beach Reserve shortly after the event.

Thanks to Knuddy's Toy World there will be prizes and we'll have a sausage sizzle down at the Kawatiri Beach Reserve. 

If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask on our Facebook page or check out our contacts page on this site. 

We hope to see you all there :)
