A friendly reminder about safety and road rules

A friendly reminder to all our members and readers, please ensure we are always upholding our Bike Manawatu values and riding / abiding by the Cycling road rules.
We have recently received some feedback about riders riding 3 abreast on Rongotea Longburn Road.

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

Cycling NZ have some great resources to read over and can be found here

Practice your skills and take care of your bike following this code, and enjoy a lifetime of cycling through beautiful New Zealand.

Take care & Thank you

Oceania Road Cycling Championships 2019

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.
Go Connie, Libby, Dylan & Kyle!!!!
