Calling all women cyclists!
Don't forget that starting tonight and running for five weeks, we'll be running a women's race as part of Zookeepers Cafe Invercargill Wednesday Worlds.
We want to encourage women to get on their bikes during Aotearoa Bike Challenge Month in a fun, safe and friendly environment.
The first 15km lap of the two lap race will be a bunch ride, helping new riders pick up new skills and techniques with racing to begin on the second lap.
All are welcome - pop out to Tisbury School at 6pm reporting for 6.30pm racing, $5 entry. Tony Ineson will be there to get things underway but keep an eye out for Sam Kopae and have a chat to her if you have any questions. It's not the Tour de France but a fun way to introduce new riders to the sport.
