MTB Race Start Time CHANGED to 9am

Hi all,

Due to a double booking of the forest we need to change the mtb race start time to 9am. Luckily the double booking was with our friends over at the NW Orienteering Club, so we have worked together to organise for our event to move forward by 1hr and their event will move out until slightly later.

This reminds me that I must say a big thank you to Rayoniers (who run the forest) for their support by allowing us free access to the forest for our sport.


P.s. – Don’t forget to register please! Hoping to have 50 cycle enthusiasts on the start line 🙂

More Support for our Event – The Fireplace Bar & Brasserie!

Big thanks to The Fireplace Bar & Brasserie in Kumeu, situated just 500m from the start line for our event. They are sorting us out with FREE hot chips at their place for after the event – and it is no exaggeration that they are the best chips out west for sure!

So let’s gather for a quick drink after the road event on 6 March, scoff down some chips, check out the placings and review the mtb race details for Saturday. More info to come…
