Cycling Clubs In Whangarei

Postby bilbo baggins on Wed 6/May/09 9:26am

Hi All
I am new to the forum but moving to Whangarei from the Uk in August. I am a keen roadie and do a some gentle mountain biking. Am keen to get going with a new club or to meet like minded people to ride with when I come over. Any help or info very welcome. Just hoping my bike doesn't take to long to arrive..

The Parahaki MTB Club is right here on Vorb: rez_display.php?c=221&mode=posts - they should be able to help you with finding a roadie club too :)

Roadie club = Marsden Wheelers, quite active and social/friendly bunch. bunch rides leave from Kensington Park fitness centre most Sunday mornings. Pop into Fat Dog Cycles, they will set you up with contact numbers etc.

MTB club = Parahaki MTB Club for XC and general stuff; Whangarei MBC for DH/gravity/DJ type stuff (though both groups work in together, share members etc etc etc, just different flavours of the same vodka). PM Quinster here on vorb and he should see you right.

or there is a Whangarei forum here somewhere (runs to find it)*

*Tama beat me to it :-)

Thanks for the info. Will be arriving 18th August 09 and in a motel for a couple of weeks. Unfortunately my bikes will not be arriving for 6-9 weeks after! I have a plan though as my o/h only has a hybrid so if I buy him a ATB and use it until mine arrive I might survive; kind of a present ! Just cannot imagine going all that time not cycling. Look forward to meeting some of you in person when I arrive. Bilbo
