We’re back! Firstly we must say a huge congratulations to all of our club members as there have been so many fantastic personal achievements during the off season. Whether this has been achieving a personal best at the local time trial, competing in regional road cycling, triathlons, mountain biking, national track events or even just surviving the Covid -19 lockdown with your family. We just wanted to say we are proud of all of you!
As we look towards the opening day of the 2020-2021 Bike Manawatu track season, we have a lot of information and positive changes to share with you. Firstly, we warmly welcome all the new members that have been produced from our ‘Have a go’ days. We have been very impressed with the level of skill from all new riders who attended our orientation days. We pay special thanks Ian Gray for working so hard over the past few weeks completing the hired bike fits.
We wish to thank those of you who responded to our online survey and as we look toward this season, your comments and feedback have been listened to by the committee and we have some exciting changes and events in the planning.
This weekend is our official opening day for the track season along with the 2019-2020 prize giving which we are very excited about.
Please take note of the updated calendar which will take us through until Christmas.
OPENING DAY AND PRIZE GIVING

- I am aware of the dangers of track cycling/ racing and compete in the event at my own risk. - I have read and understood any written race instructions and acknowledge that all instructions, whether written or verbal, are clear and unambiguous. Take careful note of the pre-race briefing given to you by the starter. - The organisers have done their best to make the event as safe as they can. - I must obey all the track rules. - The decision of the Commissaire is final and discussions will not be entered into. - If I am involved in an accident, I will not seek to blame or make a claim against the organisers, nor will I assist anyone else in making such a claim. - If I have any concerns with the race organisation, I will raise them with the organiser first. I will not raise them with any other person, recognising that I will only jeopardise the continuation of the event.
