Recreational Riding

{loadmodule Recreational Menu}

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 3 rides:

Long Rides – covering 75-85km

Medium Rides – covering 55-65km

Short Rides – covering 30-40km

For the long and medium rides there may be the option for faster or slower groups to suit all abilities.
