12 Month Race Calendar

Thanks to a hard working sub committee we are pleased to announce the race calendar for the next 12 months. – Click here to view

As part of our drive to get bums on seats over a broad range of ages and abilities Bike Manawatu will be running one Road Race a month over the winter months.

June is shaping up to be a busy month with 2 WCNI races, the first being a ITT and Criterium in Horowhenua on Sunday 9th followed by a Road Race hosted by us at Halcombe on Saturday 29th.

In between those events Bike Manawatu is holding a Road Race on Saturday afternoon 15th June at Taonui, in what we call the A1 loop – Pre Register Here. Same course as last year, flat but still with it’s challenges.

This loop is great for Graded road racing and an awesome road circuit to dip your toes into club racing.

 

In July, with the clubs Traffic Management trailer not being required for schools cycling that day, we will be running a Morning Graded Road Race on Sunday 14thJuly on the Akers Road circuit – Pre Register Here.

We had a great group of Masters riders turn up to our midweek races on this course earlier this year and it proved to be a great success.

 

August will come around soon enough and pending permission from the Army we head to Linton Camp for a Graded Road race around the large loop.

Manawatu Schools Cycling and the Novice Tour have had the privilege of having the use of the camp over the years to run events at the camp and we are hopeful that this will encourage the Army cyclist to pop into the higher grades and race with us on the day.

 

September onwards is full on, with Trust House racing in Wairarapa and our own racing building up to Taupo.

With the unfortunate news that the Tour de Manawatu is not being held this year Bike Manawatu will run Feilding Festival on the November date.

A lot of our championships will be run before midway though December, not to mention the 4 weeks of Criterium racing at Manfeild and the annual ITT series in October and December.

 

The entire calendar is on the Website, and course maps and times will follow in the coming weeks.

 

Look forward to seeing as many as riders as possible to the A1 loop on Saturday afternoon 15th June.

Entries will be online, and it would be wise to head off to an establishment for a catch up after the event…I’m in
