Spring Series Sponsored by:Howard Co Logo Black

Tuesday Club Nights have been re-imagined! 

We're delighted to welcome Howard & Co as sponsors of the revamped Spring Series.  Ceinwen's generous sponsorship means that we will be able to reward our riders and marshalls with prizes each night, adding to the spirit of the new format.  If you're looking to buy and/or sell real estate, we'd love you to talk to Howard & Co, and please mention KCC!

New format!  While some people love the thrill of the race, many just love the comaraderie of bunch riding.  And what better way to make the most of the longer evenings, than a short, fun group ride?   Now you have a choice! 
 - First up each night will be The Social Circuit, which is a group ride that will allow you to develop fitness, skills and get a feel for the circuit.  An experienced group leader will control the pace to keep everyone together until the final lap.  Once the bell rings, there is an optional 'hot lap' if riders want to stretch their legs to the finish.  The Social Circuit will have two speeds, group 1 will be away at 6.15pm, and average 25-30kph, and group 2 will be off at 6.20pm, averaging 20-25kph.  Ride time will be approximately 20-25 mins plus the optional hot lap.    
- At 7pm, A, B, C grade handicap race is a catch-me-if-you-can story!  C grade will be away first, followed by B and then A.  The objective of a handicap race is to work together to stay away from the groups behind you and try to catch the ones in front!  It's a fun format, and all about working together.      

The first 5 Club nights will be at the flat 2.2km long Nga Manu circuit on Tuesday 29th September, then we move to the 800 metre Southwards course around the Car museum carpark on 3rd November.  Both are very safe, challenging-but-doable courses.  Both circuits need 1 marshall - so if you'd like to watch or support, and would like to marshall, we'd love to hear from you!

Everyone is welcome.  Members $5, Non-members $10.

See you there!
