Giving the boys an excuse  to wear lycra since 1889Don't Forget... it's this weekend

Just a reminder for the Bush Cycle Tour, If you havnt got your entry in you need too before the cut off if you would like a meal. All so, all funds raised by the cycling group will go to fund relief for the Christchurch Earth Quake.

So this could be your contribution

Masters2010In case you weren't there Manawatu riders made a great impression in all cycling events at last weeks NZ Masters Games held in Wanganui.

The first event was the 1 mile time trial. This was on Tuesday night and was around the cemetary circuit where normally motor bikes race just after Christmas each year. We rode around the course in the opposite direction to the motorbikes. Top lap time for a motorbike was reported as 49seconds with a top speed of 180km/hr on the finish straight. With the cones placed tightly on each of the corners it meant that riders could not go hard and fast but had to slow down to ensure that you could get around the corner safely.

Much to our disappointment this was not a medal event and only certificates were presented.

The Patricia Fraser Memorial Trail project aims to create a safe off-road cycling and walking route for recreational users and commuters linking Ashhurst and the Manawatu Gorge from the city. 

The intention is to present a petition to the Palmerston North City Council to urge them to prioritise this project.

They need your support to make this proposal a reality

Please support their petition  http://www.patriciafrasermemorialtrail.org/

Bike Manawatu is well represented in the team that has been selected to represent WCNI at the Track Nationals to be held in Invercargill.

Our best wishes go with all of the riders.
