Long Endurance Rides before Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge
With so many of our members joining Colin Anderson as he marks off 100 official laps of the lake (and goodness knows how many unofficial laps), I thought it would be a good idea to organise 2 long endurance rides to help everyone log those miles in preparation. These rides will also be useful for those doing the 1 lap event also.
Everyone is welcome to join us for these group rides, and will have a ‘no drop’ policy. If we get large numbers interested, then we may separate in to smaller bunches to allow for differing levels of fitness and ability.
The first ride will be Sunday 8 September, and will be Apiti Loop. There will be a coffee stop in either Feilding or back in town at the completion of the ride.
The second ride will be around 200km, and will most likely be a loop around to Pongaroa with a stop at the pub for lunch. As this ride is a longer ride, and is reasonably challenging, we will have a support van and mechanic for this one, so a small contribution towards fuel and paying for the mechanics time will be required.
Please click on the link below to express your interest, so I can see how much interest there is in providing these rides.
