Hill Climb Block - Akatarawa Climb

This is the third of three Tuesday night hill climbs... And also serves as the Club Hill Climb Championship.

We've had a couple of shorter warm-ups - and now we have the full monty.  We will start the climb on Elizabeth Street in Waikanae and heading all the way to the summit of the Akas.  This gives us 11.7km - so an increase in distance from the last two climbs in the block.  Some people love climbing hills and so this is a great opportunity to show us what you've got.  If you are like me and going up isn't your strongest suit... here's an opportunity to work on that and to also push yourself to see what you can do.  It's only a competition with yourself really - lay down a marker to see if you can beat it the next time we climb up here.  Plus a short sharp effort like this is fantastic fitness.  Most people will be at home watching telly - while you will be out on your road bike being magnificent.

Registration will be on Elizabeth Street in Waikanae.

The first rider away is at 6:30pm with subsequent riders off at intervals after that.

Registration will open at 6:00, 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 have been coming to our events - then we need you to join and to help us with putting on events.  The club cannot survive without a good membership and volunteer base. 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 (Jan to Dec)).  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.
