Here's a nice little hill climb teaser....

We are going to decide the club hill climb champ this season over a series of 3 hill climbs with points accumulated for each climb.

The 3 race Hill Climb series will be later in the program and include a climb up the Akatarawas, a climb up the Maungakotukutuku Hill and one other to be confirmed (it could be this course in Nikau Valley again - in which case this is a good trial run)

This event - is just to give you a taste of a short sharp climb.  It's only 1.2km long - how hard could it be?

Registration will be in Nikau Valley at the corner of Maui Pomare and Anlaby Road.  The climb itself is starting at the beginning of Anlaby road and climbing straight away to near the end of the road - but not all the way.  The map might have the finish in slightly the wrong place.. If anything I've got it a bit long - which I'm sure you'll all appreciate when your lungs are screaming for the finish (am I selling it?)

The first rider away is at 6pm with subsequent riders off at intervals after that.

Registration will open at 5:30, and the riders will go off in the order that they register.

It's $5 for Kapiti Members and $10 for non-members.   If you don't want to carry cash with you - we are more than happy that you pay online directly into our bank account.   You can pay for as many or as little races in one hit as you want - completely up to you.  Pay into 03-0732-0020082-00 and use your name and 'Racing' as a reference so we can find you easily.  You still have to register - but tell them at the trailer that you have already paid and they will record that.

If you are going to pay by cash, can you please bring the right amount with you as we cannot keep up with the demand for change from 20's and 50's dispensed by ATMs.  For this reason, we prefer that people pay directly to the bank account.

If you would like to join the club - there are a couple of ways of doing it.  If you just want to enter the myriad of Kapiti Club events then it is just $55 (membership goes for a calendar year).  If you want to be part of the Kapiti events PLUS race regional and national events such as the Wellington Center Champs or National Age group Champs then you will need to join the club at the lower price of $45 and also take out a Cycling NZ Licence which is generally $65 for an Adult or $45 for a Junior.  Click HERE for more details of both membership types.
