Register Early to Assist with Planning

For all those cyclists planning on entering Keepers of the Cog, we would be really grateful if you can register when you have a moment, sooner rather than later if possible. It’s super important for us to know indicative numbers early for planning of the road side of the event. Although we have a traffic management plan and marshals on important sections of the course, there is a lot of planning that goes on behind the scenes in order to keep every safe on the road.

Thanks for you help on this one! Look forward to seeing you there.

Sunday Ride 26th January 2014

Rec Ride 2 + Te Henga


The aim of this ride is to self seed int0 2 or three groups and ride together as a well organized bunch until Taupaki School.

From the school to Scenic drive should be race pace interval.


If you would like a shorter option a group will be riding the usual Rec ride, 54km.

Sunday rides 19th January

Long ride


The instructions with this ride are to ride steady as a self seeded bunch through to helensville.  Ride Phase one from Helensville which is just a little more intensity (Not racing) and ride big chain ring up Amriens and Tunnel.


Short ride


if you are after a short option the normal rec ride  54kmwill be suitable for most

Club members chilling out after T42 at National Park.

A couple of times a year we like to attend an event/race as a club. If it’s out of Auckland it might be in the form of group accommodation, transport and meals. If it’s in Auckland, it might just be putting up a club tent and providing a place for members to hang out and support eachother. In 2013, the DoC-supported mtb events were T42 and Woodhill 360, then the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge/Huka Challenge for the whole club, both road and mtb.

Please let us know what events you plan to enter or are keen on attending this year so we can put together some DoC support for the most popular. Click to complete the survey here, it’s only 2 questions!

Jafakids – We haven’t put in your ASSS events into the options but please fill it out if you are keen to complete any other events. Last year it was awesome to have the Page family join us for T42.

Thanks everyone for your time!
