**CANCELLED - sorry folks, the weather hasn't played the game and we're making the call early to cancel for this week.  We will reconvene next week - for another handicap event - and then a TT the week after.

 

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

This short block includes 3 handicapped road races and then a time trial on the same course.

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:

  • $5 for Kapiti members.
  • $10 for non-Kapiti members

You do not need to be a member to enter the events though we'd love to help you grow your abilities with us.

Registration:

  • This involves picking up your event number, confirming your grade, and paying the 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.

  2. 18th February (Peka Peka Block, Event 2) 
  3. 25th February (Peka Peka Block, Event 3)
  4. 3rd March (Peka Peka Block, Event 4)

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