Every time you ride, you have an opportunity to help encourage a cycle friendly culture.

While most of the talk this weekend will be about the Novice Tour, and rightly so - we also need to mention that 2 of our young members are off to the Oceania Road Cycling Championships in Tasmania this weekend.
Bike Manawatu has 2 representatives with Connie O’Brien and Libby Arbuckle both in the u23 grade. Connie had a great result last year finishing in 3rd place in the U19 race.
The race is 105km consisting of a 26 km loop with a tough 10 min climb that is completed 4 times.
We also have Dylan Simpson riding in the U23 & Kyle Hoskin U19's Mens divisions
The race is this weekend, Saturday the 16th March this is the second time it’s been held in Tasmania.
Bike Manawatu would like to wish the girls the best of luck for the event.
