Congratulations to Chris Pinkney who was present at the Sunday ride this week, collecting a $140 voucher from Pedal Pushers.

If Chris had been wearing BikeManawatu kit, it would have been $240.

The Bike Manawatu AGM was held last Wednesday Night at the Marist Club rooms in conjunction with the Track and TT prize giving. A total of 79 people attended to make the evening a success. Congratulations to all those who received prizes, and much thanks to Ian Gray and Kate Stewart for organising the prizes.

Three new Board members were elected: Michael Groube, Austin Smith, and Chris Sanson. They join Steve Stannard, Kelly Johnson, Brendan Hapeta, and John van Lienen on the Board. Much thanks to retiring Board members Iona McCarthy, Marcel Hollenstein, and Mike Christie for the tireless work they put into the club.

We have also appointed a new Bike Manawatu Administrator through an advertised and contestable recruitment process. We are pleased to be able to welcome Christine Christie to this position. She will be working in the role on a part time basis.
