Congratulations to all cyclists, supporters and race organisers for yet again another we’ll run event with over 70 riders competing at our annual “Bone Collector” last weekend which is something different to watch or participate. The Manawatu Schools Bone Collector is designed for all ages and abilities to buddy up in teams of four to race and build confidence and skills has be fantastic. How it works. The first team rider, normally the strongest starts out and completes one lap of the course on their own and then picks up the second rider and together they complete the second lap and then the third rider is picked up for the third lap and the fourth rider for the fourth lap. The team must cross the finish line together to get 1st,2nd or 3rd placing. Check out results on Manawatuschoolcycling Facebook
The Course: Ashhurst -Ulysses Road-Watershed Road-Colyton Road-Ashhurst.
Well done to all teams, winners and place getters.
