Baxter & Neilson Series 3
This Friday night is Round 3 in the Baxter & Neilson Junior Race Series. Make sure you’re there at 5.30pm for bike checks and warm ups and have a great night of racing again everyone! Feel free to head along and cheer them all on too, there’s some great action at these events.
Friday Flyers Sessions
We will not be running our 5-6pm Flyers session on a Friday for the time being as the majority of kids that attended this are now attending Friday night Junior Racing and the Baxter and Neilson series.
Our Wednesday Flyers session will continue as usual and Wheelers sessions remain unaffected.
Saturday Road Racing
Big thanks to Wally and those who fronted in extremely average conditions last Saturday for the Riverton-Otautau race. Due to low numbers a sealed handicap was raced - hardy stuff and check out the results here

With so many new riders on board in recent months it’s a great time to remind that we have our own online Trading Post where you can buy and sell all things cycling-related. Many pairs of shoes went online just yesterday. Check them out here

Well that’s it from me as the rain comes down again … sigh and roll on spring and summer.
Take care for the week ahead everyone!
