Waikawa Results published

What a brilliant day for a ride on the beach - and who doesn't love a beach ride! And gentle-folks hours too - couldn't have been better.

The results are now available here.

Just one more ride to go now, with Waitohu wrapping up the season. Hope to see you all there.

Photos from Waikawa may be a little slower than usual coming out as I have a committment at the Endurance Nationals over Easter that will have to take precedence. I'll get them out as quickly as I can.

Champs Photos - late change of venue for next ride

Photos from Champs (Battle Hill) are on Flickr now and linked from the photos page. Some of the shots from the forest are a bit grainy and fuzzy, but it was great to get to that part of the trail again. Unfortunately I had to take a short-cut to get back to base in time and missed a few of the last riders out. I hope you'll make it to Waikawa and hope to catch you on the beach.

Which leads us into our late change - the drought in the Rangitikei area means we're unable to use the Rata venue this year. We've been very fortunate to be offered the use of our regular Waikawa Beach venue which was unavailable earlier in the year.

Because of the tides we're going to have a later start which will be a bonus for those of you who usually have to get up at 5am or earlier for our more distant rides. Details are in the calendar.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Waikawa.

Catch up - Bright's wrapped and ready for Champs

Just a last minute update for those of you who use the blog (our facebook group members know this stuff already)

At last, photos from Bright's are available on Flickr - link through the photos page as usual.
Also results from Bright's can be accessed on the results page.

Natalie Bickerton has made some brilliant shots from Manakau available to us in an album accessed through the club Facebook page, but you do have to be a Facebook member and sign up to the WATRC group to view the photos.

It's the eve of the Club Championships. Entries for the championships classes are closed and the draw has been finalised and emailed to competitors (you can find a link in the calendar if you lost the email) but you can still enter non-championship Novice and Novice Junior classes for a great ride around Battle Hill.

Hope to see you all there.
