  • The 8th Annual Winter Fun Ride Series
    The Winter Fun Ride Series is a 3 week fun ride event held over 3 Sundays in August with two distance options available each week. The 3 rides
    are suitable for all levels of ability. I recommend these rides, a great way to kick off training in the Spring.

There are a series of 8 races at the car track and will finish with 1 road race on Sunday April 1st.. The dates are timed to coincide with daylight savings finishing, and the road race slots in between some busy race weekends.

  • Nigel Tipene is the 2012 Velodrome director:

    From Monday 16th January 6:00pm -7:00pm , I am going to be running skills and drills sessions to encourage new riders to the Velodrome. I will focus on track etiquette, confidence, and skills to help people feel better about racing at the Velodrome on the Wednesday nights. I ask people to bring helmets, shoes and pedals. The Taupo cycling club has various sized Track bikes for loan. This is concentrating on new riders.

  • Summer had certainly disappeared for the last race of the Top Gear Cycles sponsored Summer Race series held at the Velodrome last Saturday. No rain but quite a cool wind at the Velodrome bought fewer riders to the final event. Spot prize winner for the day was Junior - Kyle Goucher who put in a great effort racing some of the older guys.

  • We had fantastic weather again for the second race of the series, the out and back course along Tukairangi Road is a tough one, with a deceptive up hill climb on the way out and
    slight head wind on the way back this made for a challenging race.

  • A beautifully calm and clear night - we didn’t need to turn our lights on until about 5 laps into the race.

    Groups 2 and 3 raced 7 laps with Spud, Josh and Nick winning ‘on the road’ in a time of 36.55min - they had a 4min start? on the scratch group who were led home by Paddy who did the fastest net time of the night - 33.15min with Wayne next in 33.20?

  • On Saturday afternoon 16 Taupo Cycling Club riders turned out for the second race of our AvantiPlus Taupo Winter Series.

    This event was an individual time trial held on Tukairangi Road - this road is quite testing, being slightly uphill on the way out with a steep uphill section on the way back again. It was a perfect day for road cycling with no wind and relatively warm, compared to the lousy weather we have had to put up with recently.

  • 14 riders were out on a beautifully clear night with no wind, 6 lap handicap race. wayne McConaghy jumped the start off scratch and easily came through the field to finish in a time of 36.46min. Trevor Stevens hung on to Waynes back wheel to finish a close second. The junior riders, Jordan Thurston, Nick Cameron and Ben Watson all rode well together in Bunch 2. Jordan won the sprint by a wheel, with all three having the same time of 34.27min.

  • On a cold and windy night we had 8 riders racing a 6 lap event. Fastest time and first on the road was Brad Setters in 34.24min, 2nd Barry Pritchard 34.33, and 3rd Nick Cameron 38.03

    All riders are reminded that now that daylight saving has finished head and tail lights are mandatory for the racing. Also riders are reminded that the agreement with the management is that we don’t ride on to the track until 6pm (often there are service vehicles working until that time).
