Road riding behaviour
Comments have come back to the office about the behaviour and etiquette of riders cycling to our events. Can you please ensure you’re following the NZ road rules – we need to set the example of best behaviour in the community.
Also, a reminder about inappropriate language being used during racing – there are young riders on the same course and senior riders need to set an example.
Don’t forget a plate for supper at the 2018 Cycling Southland Annual General Meeting, on this Thursday, 7pm, in the Legends Lounge 2 at the ILT Stadium Southland.
