The Rev Saturday Feb 28th Cambridge Waikato. http://www.therev.co.nz/  I have registered our group as follows.

  • Team Name: Department of Cycling
  • Team Password: DOCREV2015
  • Event Category: Team Up Challenge (REV 100)
  • Password will be activated on December 20. Please do not try to register before then if you are planning to join our team / group.

I have secured first dibs on a tent site after promo types have been allocated, we shall have an 18’ x 12’ pole tent erected courtesy of New Lynn Sea Scout Group and BBQ / Drinks will be provided as a fundraiser for their Venturer unit. Costs TBA , economies of scale, this should be very affordable.

OPTION: To have some kit knocked up for the occasion or even a later event like the Flyer, approx. cost will depend upon quantity ordered around $130 for the tops, not going to do bib shorts I don’t think, cost would get up around $200 plus 🙁

If you are interested please get in touch with Geoff directly.

Taranaki New Plymouth. “Round the Mountain” cycle 150km.

Saturday January 24th, perfect timing for Auckland Anniversary weekend.

$80 per entry. ( You get a meal and drink ticket with the entry).

This is a very fast ride, undulating hills, nothing as challenging as Taupo or K2, so ideal for all levels!!

Options:

  • Arrive Friday 23rd arrange your own dinner. I shall arrange accommodation, there is a really good back packers very handy to the event location, we have stayed there past three years.
  • Race day, group booking for dinner after prize giving, then off to see the festival of lights (free activity, live bands etc), also walking distance from our accommodation.
  • Sunday 25th options include, ride up to Mt Egmont Nat Park (bit winding and hilly) and or shopping, a visit to White Cliffs organic Brewery, and lunch there an option. Waterfront walk is a must do as well. For those more adventurous there are some great treks to do, various levels up the western flank of Mt Taranaki.

Heaps to do, other suggestions welcome. I do need to get an indication of numbers please. The plan will be to return to Auckland Monday 26th, in time to return to work on the Tuesday.Yay!!.
