Hi, I’m Austin Smith and have recently become a member of the Bike Manawatu Board. I have been a keen social cyclist for the last 15 years and a member of the club since 2005. I ride regularly with mid week groups, Saturday rides and the BM rides on Sunday. I try to ride the locally organised rides each year and enjoy the social aspect of the rides in Palmerston North.
Please feel free to talk to me on rides about any concerns or ideas you have for the future of cycling and the direction of club. For the club to prosper and improve we must all work together to support competitive, social, and beginning riders. While each group has differing needs as a team we can build upon the sound foundation that the past membership and committee has built for Bike Manawatu.
