Hope you all had a great long weekend!
It’s all guns blazing in the office with the SBS Bank Tour of Southland kicking off with the popular launch part in the Gala Street Reserve this Sunday from 1.30pm. Make sure you head on down for all the action with live music from 1pm
Help still needed please
Meanwhile, we still need a driver for the Cycling Southland utility van during the tour, contact Rabbit firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 219 9325 if you can help out
We also need some marshals for the Ricoh Sunday Corporate Team Time Trial, this is happening at 2pm. Again please let Rabbit know if you can help by holding a flag on a corner.
Finally, we still have an amnesty on lights, radios, vests, flags etc so get them in to us asap please and thank you!
Make sure you get out and about and cheer our 19 tour teams on as they head past you – they could end up with tour tans again this year judging the long-term weather forecast.
