Taupo Under 5 hr Training Group 2010

This year we will be following a slightly different format.

GOAL: Form a group of riders of a similar ability who share the under 5 hr at Taupo goal that can ride together once a week as part of their Taupo training. The intent is for this group to be able to ride together on the day too!!

WHEN DOES IT START: Sunday August 8th

RIDES: This year we will ride as a separate group as part of the Avantiplus Waitakere Sunday Bunch Ride. We will also use some of the fun rides to prepare for Taupo.

WHO CAN ATTEND: All riders prepared to put themselves in a position to go under 5 hours

KEEP UPDATED: To keep up to date with under 5 hour info register on the DoC website for the Under 5 hr group emails and keep an eye on the DoC events calendar.

QUESTIONS: Email me if you have any questions.

Fundraiser Movie Night

As you may already know, I have been selected to compete for NZ at the World Long Distance Triathlon Champs in Germany on August 1st 2010. I have managed to get most of the money together that I need but I am faced with a shortfall for the overall trip. To help me afford to go I am running an evening where friends can come and watch The A Team at Westgate Theatre, Westgate, Auckland, on July 21st at 9.00pm. Tickets cost $20 and you can pay on the night – but please rsvp to me at this address and I can make sure you get a seat:-)
Thanks for considering helping me out.
