Update: 6-Dec: Reminder that anyone wishing to go to the training camp needs to contact Steve Stannard ASAP (contact details below).
Steve Stannard is organising a training camp for the week for before Christmas .
It’s really an opportunity to go riding on some different and challenging roads.
The camp will start on the 17th and go until the 22nd Dec.
The intention is to Wanganui via Hunterville on the first day and overnight there at the Top 10 Motorcamp or similar. We will have a following car.
Then the group will ride up through the Paraparas to Ohakune and spend the rest of the time (Wed to Sat) training there.
Accommodation will be in a shared house and cost (yet to be confirmed), which include food and accommodation, should be less than $400.
There will be a limit on the numbers going (less than 20), just for logistics and safety, but if people want to go up on the Wed and do the camp from then on, that should be fine and will cost a little less.
Riders will have to be fit enough to comfortably ride 120km in a bunch, taking in a few decent sized hills.
Those going will have to take responsibility for making sure their bike is in good mechanical order, that they have spares and a pump, will take food and water on the rides, and know how to change a tyre!
Please contact Steve within the next week or so if you are keen on going.
