by | Sep 15, 2011

You might be aware that Jodie and Tom have cycled around the world from the UK to be at the RWC. Brit cyclists on World Cup sojorn
They will be riding from Levin in to Palmerston North on Monday 26th September. They areriding to Shannon on SH 57 , from Shannon head to Opiki which means turning left and over the railway lines on to state highway 56 when you are a few kms north of Shannon. From Opiki stay on state highway 56 all the way into Palmy. So it would be really great if a group of Bike Manawatu cyclists could go out and meet them and then turn around and bike “slowly” back in to Palmy with them. they are planning on handing over the scroll with all the signatures that they have collected to the Rugby Museum.

They have been collecting signatures from Rugby greats in the countries they have travelled through on a scroll.  The World In Union Scroll will be displayed here in Palmerston North at the New Zealand Rugby Museum.
 
In order to promote our great city as a cycling centre we would like to organise a bike ride to escort them into town.  Maybe make a big song and dance out of it.
