A fun and safe event on the exciting, Southward Museum Circuit.

Carrying on from last week we have the social "Kruzer" grade for people to come and ride the spectacular circuit in a totally non-competitive way.  After the social ride - there will be our regular graded events for people to watch.   

Adding in the "Kruzer" grade alters the timing of the regular events so check out the changes below.  

For those new to this, the format is simple... You ride around the circuit for the designated minutes for your grade, once those minutes are up you will get a whistle to let you know that you have 2 laps to go, and then a bell with one lap to go.  If you're in the Kruzer grade and simply having a tootle, that's fine.  The event manager will give you instructions on how to be safe.   

It's a helluva fun circuit, come and enjoy it.  (we'll be continuing the Kruzer Grade for the last 3 events at the circuit)


As you can see the course goes anti-clockwise round the museum.  And the road dips down and then up again when around the back - so it's a fantastic course - very safe and a huge amount of fun.

One of the great things about this course is that it's fantastic for watching the events unfold - as the riders come by every few minutes.

I'm sure most will ride there - but for those driving - parking is available inside the circuit.  We will have a marshal by the gate to let you know when you can cross the circuit safely.

The organisation is as follows:

The cost is just $5 per person for the series and capped at $10 for a family.  

The event is graded - so people of similar ability starting together and racing each other to the finish.  Only 1 event going on on the circuit at a time.  There will be early events at 5:30pm for juniors followed by 4 events for adults. 

For the seniors - as a guide...  Event 1 is for new riders, beginners and young adults.  Event 2 will be for people who are generally in C grade in our regular events.  Event 3 for B grade.  And Event 4 will be for those who are A grade normally.

Junior Events - start at 5:30pm - There will be a couple of junior events in the half hour before the adults begin.   The course will be dependant on the numbers and ages of the kids.   If we get a number of kids under 8 we will run a separate event that just takes in the front of the museum.    Older kids will have an event on the full circuit.

Senior Event 1 - Beginners grade- starts at 6pm and will go for 15minutes + 2 laps.  

Senior Event 2 - C grade- starts at 6:20pm and will go for 20minutes + 2 laps.  

Kruzer Social Event - starts at 6:45pm  and will go for 20 minutes +  2 laps.

Senior Event 3 - B grade - starts at 7:15pm  and will go for - 25 mins + 2 laps.  

Senior Event 4 - A grade - starts at 7:45pm  and will go for - 25 mins + 2 laps.  

So - it'll pay to be well warmed up before you start. (there is plenty of room within the circuit to warm up)

Registration will open at 5 pm.

Timing will be done manually and the first 3 across the line will be judged.
