Waikawa Beach - Pre-entries close 9:00 pm Wednesday 18 November

The Waikawa Beach ride poster has been released and a link can be found in our Calendar.

Following just a week after Pukemarama, pre-entries for Long Intermediate and Open classes will need to be submitted a little sooner after the previous ride than usual.

We encourage pre-entries for all classes as it makes our entries secretary's job much easier, especially at popular rides that attract large fields. There's an online pre-entries form available for your convenience.

Bulls Photos by Andrea Ropiha uploading

Andrea's photos from the Bulls ride are uploading and the complete album should be available some time in the small hours of Tuesday, all going well.

You can view the album as it loads from the link on our Photos page. The photos are stored in an album belonging to the club Flickr account.

We're very grateful to Andrea for stepping into the breach at this, her third time photographing our Bulls event. She does a great job.

Bulls results, Calendar update, and new look Homepage

We've just uploaded the Bulls results to our Results page - this is always a popular ride and well situated for both WATRC and RADRs members and was well attended. We're still hoping to receive the photos from the event and we'll get those published as soon as they're available. There's a small preview sample on our Facebook page if you've not yet seen them.

We're fortunate to have been offered the use of a Wainuiomata trail, and we've scheduled this in place of the unconfirmed Whitemans Valley ride on 24 January. The last time Wainuiomata was in our calendar was November 2010 and it will be wonderful to get back there to fabulous views over the harbour and, on a good day, the northernmost snowcaps of the Kaikouras.

We've also updated  our homepage, removing most of the static content and replacing it with a feed of the most recent posts to this blog. We hope this will make the homepage more topical and useful to site visitors and club members. The navigation side bar is unchanged and our other pages will remain as they are for now. We don't have a newsletter editor at the moment, so we'll mainly be communicating through the website, our Facebook group and the email group.

Pukemarama is our next ride on Sunday 15 November with fun fast trails over flat farmland. Enjoy.
