On Wednesday night I attended the Manawatu Secondary Sports Awards as 3 of our talented younger members had been recognised for their sporting achievements and were nominated for the awards - Connie O’Brien for Girls Road Cycling, Madi Hartley-Brown for Boys Road Cycling and Angus Claasen for Boys Track Cycling.


All 3 were outstanding representatives for both our club and for cycling and were deserving of the recognition. Congratulations from the Bike Manawatu Board.

Good luck to all our Junior riders who are competing in the 45th Novice Tour this week end.

This is a premier 3 stage tour run over 2 days around the Ashhurst area with some of the best junior talent in the country in attendance.

It's a big undertaking and requires a lot of man power to make it happen on the day. Thank you to all the members who have volunteered in many ways over the week end.

If you are out riding in the area pull over and give the riders some support.

A1 Loops 22 September

Remember our next club road race is back at A1 Loops and that there is a volunteer roster that needs filling in order to run these races. Thanks to the few who have already put their name down. We need plenty more so that the same few people don't have to run these races week after week.

Juniors are equally asked to put your name down. U17's and above can be unaccompanied. Vehicle duties require a full licence. Anyone younger than U17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Here is the roster. Simply let Keryn know which duty and which event you would like to volunteer for.

Every time you volunteer you go into the draw to win 1 of 2 $100 Nero Restaurant
