On Tuesday evening 3 weeks ago a group of people from all over the region gathered at the Hockey Turf Pavilion to learn about cycling.
The Cycling Uncovered programme is organised and run jointly by Chris Foggin of Bike NZ and Suzanne Winterburn of Sport Manawatu.
It runs for 8 weeks culminating at the end with participants entering and completing their first ever event – the Tour de Manawatu.
Over the eight weeks they are taught everything from how to change a tube if they have a puncture, nutrition when cycling, how to ride in town, coping with other traffic and how to hill climb and ride in bunches.
Along with their entry to Tour de Manawatu they were also given membership to Bike Manawatu.
So we would like to warmly welcome the following people.
You are able to come along to any club event listed on the weekly newsletter and shown on the website calendar. When you come to an event just let us know that you have done the cycling uncovered programme and someone will help you out with what is going on.
We hope you enjoy being part of our club and continue to cycle and enjoy the sport as much as all of our members do.
Welcome to Bike Manawatu – the heart of NZ cycling.
