We aim to promote and encourage recreational cycling for riders of all abilities in the Manawatu District.

We cycle all year round, with organised group rides every Sunday morning. Our rides go over varied courses around the Manawatu district.

All rides start at 8:00am at Memorial Park, Napier Rd, Palmerston North.

Usually there will be 2 rides:

  • Long Rides – covering 75-85km
  • Medium Rides – covering 55-65km

There is usually a choice of faster or slower groups to suit all abilities.

Recreational Ride Routes

We have over 80 routes around the Manawatu that we regulary use

Ride Etiquette

Riding in a bunch can be the most enjoyable experience if done in the right way. However, bunch riding can also be a huge pain if people in the group don’t understand the rules.
