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.
Are you able to lend a hand at our up & coming club races. Our calendar is out and Traffic Management sorted. All we need is... You
Race managers & Timing are positions we'd love an extra hand with but all positions including marshals & Sag Wagon Drivers are equally important for a race If we can encourage members to pop their names down at least once, we would be very appreciative of your time and will help avoid burn out from our weekly volunteers Thank you
Get in early, and avoid the end of year rush and have your licence all ready for next year so you can cruise through the holiday season without having to worry. Please be aware that if you purchase a 2019 licence before 31st December, this is the age category you will compete in for the remainder of the 2018 calendar year. *2018 licences are valid until 31st December unless a 2019 licence is issued prior, which will then make the 2018 licence no longer valid.
Cycling New Zealand Licences also come with a range of membership benefits – check out their partner discounts HERE as well as invaluable public liability insurance. The policy provides licensed riders cover for any damage to a third party property or persons that they are found legally liable for by their actions whilst riding, this is extended to cover whilst competing in races. How great is that! If you have any queries about licencing, insurance, clubs or general membership, contact the membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to welcoming you for a great year of cycling!
