Peka Peka Block Event 1 - Handicap Road Event

Welcome to the first block of events for this spring/summer/autumn.  

This short block includes 3 handicapped road races and then a mixed ability Team Time Trial.

A Handicapped event.

Bunches will leave in groups of similar ability. Slower groups will leave first, and faster groups will start at intervals subsequently. If the handicapper has calculated correctly each group will have a chance to have someone from their group win the event. But that will depend on how well your group works together, staying away from those chasing you, and catching bunches in front. Handicap events are a fantastic way to work on bunch craft, as the bunch must work together for most, if not all, of the event.

There is a group for everyone, whatever your ability, and all are welcome. If you haven't been in an event before, make it known at registration and we can direct you to someone who can fill you in on the details.

The first group will get away at 6:30pm sharp - with subsequent groups to follow.

Cost:

  • If you pay online:
    • $5 for Kapiti members.
    • $10 for non-Kapiti members. 
  • If you pay on the day

Registration:

  • This involves picking up your event number, confirming your grade, and us checking you've paid your event fee. It would greatly assist if people could get to the start with plenty of time.
  • Registration is at the club trailer which will be at the start/finish on Rutherford Drive in Waikanae Beach (see map below).
  • Registration: open at 5:45pm and winding up at 6:15pm. 

The dates are:

  1. 22nd October (Peka Peka Block, Event 1) 
  2. 29th October (Peka Peka Block, Event 2) 
  3. 5th November (Peka Peka Block, Event 3)
  4. 12th November (Peka Peka Block, Event 4)

Distances:

  • Because of the restriction of daylight, we will run the first two events as 3 laps of the 9.52km circuit (28.52km) and then the last two events we will push out to 4 laps giving us a 38.08km event. This is a great way to ease back into the fun of events. Please ensure you have lights on your bikes

The first group will get away at 6:30pm sharp - with subsequent groups to follow.
