Hi there everyone,

Racing commences on Park Ave 14th February.

For those that have never done it before - it's a handicap race 10 times around a 3.5km course starting an finishing on Park Ave in Waikanae.

Handicap racing - Means slower groups leaving first with faster groups chasing them down from later start times.  The key to this is groups working together to stay away from those chasing - and to catch those in front.  Teamwork pays here.

There will be 6 weeks of racing at Park Avenue making up the Avantiplus Park Ave Points Series.  Points will be awarded to the first 10 riders home on handicap and also lesser points for the first 3 fastest riders.

We hope to be using the timing system for this series, so bring your tags all those that have them. Nigel is testing the equipment as we speak and we hope to have it ready for the start of the series.

If you don't have a tag - they can be purchased on the night for $15 (they are yours to keep and work at any of our races or interclub timed races in the region).  There will be limited loan tags available for those guests who are new to club racing and just want to give racing a try.

The cost is just $5 per licenced rider (members of other clubs are welcome at that same price) and $15 for a non-licenced rider.  Every rider will be asked to produce their licence so remember to bring it with you.   As with the past races this season, if you can pre-enter this is a real help to the organisers.  Simply email your name and preferred grade to out Club Captain, Doug Barrett, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before Tuesday mid-day.  If not preregistered, please do this as soon as possible on the night at the club trailer.

If you aren't a member talk to the friendly faces at the registration trailer and they will give you the details or click HERE to see how to join.  If you've not raced with us before you are welcome to try a few races out before deciding whether to join us in our passion :)

It would greatly assist if people could get there with plenty of time as we will need people to register their tags - so bring them to registration - pay your entry - then run your tag over the reader to confirm you are registered in the correct group and you are good to go.


Registration will open at 5:45pm at the Club Trailer which will be on Park Ave.

Our sponsor for the series is Avantiplus Kapiti - please support them.
