Club member Neil Pollock says farewell
At 75, club member Neil Pollock says he is really going to miss the Manawatu for its people and great cycling when he leaves to live in Auckland soon.
The modest but very determined Neil has really enjoyed the fitness and social side to cycling. He has been aa regular on the Wednesday Morning group, Saturday morning BP Group, the Bike Barn rides and was a keen Kairanga Time trial regular where he holds a club record for his age group.
A big highlight for Neil was competing in the world masters games in Auckland last year.
From your many friends at Bike Manawatu Neil, thank you for being a valued member and participant in both our annual social and event ride calendar.
