Cycle Challenge wrapup
Thank you all who volunteered on Friday evening. It was a great event, and the course was an improvement on the longer course of previous years. Some pretty impressive speeds going down Tongariro street.
Well done to all those who entered & completed the various events - around the lake, MTB etc. Ex Taupo rider, Frank Sutton, had a great ride in the Elite Men & finished a strong 6th, in a very quick time.
Some of our club juniors where part of the Taupo Nui A Tia Relay team that took out 2nd place overall in the 4 person Relay Team event on Saturday in a time of 5 hrs 34 mins, beaten only by a team of 4 men. Their time also placed them 1st in the mixed team division and they were the 1st school team home - earning themselves $500.00. Team members were Jack Edwards (leg 1), Maddy Edwards (leg 2), Joep Lenior (leg 3) and Hannah Howell (leg 4).
Taupo Cycling Club provides activities for cycling enthusiasts.
The club was the major driving force behind the building of the local cycling velodrome. This project was supported by the community, through various fund raising activies.
The goal of the club is to encourage & develop the sport of cycling, through organised activities.
As well as organising weekly rides like the Sunday Morning Social Ride, Tuesday Night Racing and Skills Session or Racing at the Velodrome, the club encourages entry into a variety of local, regional and international cycling events and you can check out the event calendar to find out more.

WE NEED YOU!
The Taupo cycling club needs you! We have had a number of our wonderful committee members resign and move away from here.
I know it sounds cliched but we can only run the club on volunteer help.
