This years La Femme fun ride offered ladies 60, 44 and 20 k, as well as a 20 k specifically for families, and a 60 k 3 person Accumulator event, designed to give any age and ability a challenge with no pressure on beginners.
All events went very well, with some of last years participants turning up for this years event.
We had very positive feedback from various participants who praised some of our local ladies for helping them to complete the ride. Riders from Hawkes Bay, Whanganui, and Otaki took part this year also.
We enjoyed a picnic atmosphere after the ride with a light lunch supplied by Sport Manawatu , a sausage sizzle and lollies for the kids.
Churchyard Physiotherapy was our major sponsor again this year giving a Voucher to the value of $350 which was won by Vicki Carne.
The major prizes this year included Yellow Jerseys for the winners, free Bike Manawatu Memberships, Pedal Pushers Vouchers, Speedway Tickets, Café Cuba Vouchers, along with a lot of lovely spot prizes which every rider received.
Our aim is to encourage ladies to give it a go, and we’re happy to see new faces in ‘La Femme’ 2015. Thanks to everyone for participating and making the day a success!
