    Road Cycling

    We aim to promote and encourage cycling and cycle racing for all ages, from Juniors to Seniors and Veterans/Masters, and for all abilities in the Manawatu District. 


    You can cycle all year round, with organised Saturday races or group rides. Races include handicapped races, graded road races, time trials, and hill climbs. Road race distances are normally from 40 to 60 km for Seniors with shorter distances for less experienced riders and younger riders. In some races riders compete for trophies that can be an opportunity to have your name engraved alongside some of New Zealand's most famous cyclists from days gone by. Most trophy races are handicapped to give everyone a chance. 


    The Club organises Saturday club racing, Club Championship events in age groups for time trial and road race. Members can also compete in inter-club, regional and national competitions and may be selected to compete in National Championships.
