New branding for the Manfeild 6Hour


Thanks to Llewellyn Annandale, Graphic & Web Designer at Destination Manawatu, we have a great new design for the Manfeild 6Hour brand.


Major update to the club website planned…

New BikeManawatuNew BikeManawatuOur club website first launched over three years ago.

I decided it was time for some re-design…

This re-build of the website brings the engine of the site (Joomla) up to the latest version.  This means better functionality and security.
Overall the new site is:

  • Cleaner design
  • More secure from hackers
  • Has better support for phones and tablets (small screens)
  • Better support for video & YouTube

If you are interested in a sneak peek have a look here

I hope the site will be live in about a week.

New BikeManawatu Website Up

Hi All

I have transitioned to the new layout for BikeManawatu.

While it’s mostly all working there are a few “teething troubles”, which I’ll sort out over the next little while.

Thanks to everyone who gave feedback.

Why did we change?  Well the version of the tools the website is built on (Joomla) had become quite out of date and was no longer supported for security patches.  So a complete refresh was the best approach to keeping current and secure.

There was an unexpected disruption to the site during the swap over, but InspireNet have fixed that and all is go.

The content should be identical to the old site, although the Club Ride Calendar was tricky to migrate and there may be some old events that have now disappeared.
