Hey guys

This is very low key with no entry fee and is just for the young-uns. (parents are welcome to assist)

When: Saturday 27th Feb 11am
Where: Pukete Rd entrance
What to bring: You under 12 kids ..... oh, and their bikes

Sounds great Russ. I'm sure Oliver would love to go to his own 'race' for a change! Hopefully we can make it on the day. :)

Was fun putting it on and very rewarding seeing the smiles on some kids faces.

Write up on HMTB site.

At some stage in the future we shall definitely do more of this type of thing. We may also resurrect the see-saw and come up with a few other things to assist with teaching balance skills to the kids while giving them something fun and interesting to do.


Once again, thanks to all those that participated and those that assisted with running it. Special thanks to Gerry and the team at Dole Foods - you guys rock.

Definately keen to help out again. It's nice to put something on for the grass-roots of the club and watch their confidence / enjoyment grow through the day. May even join the club next year! :)

To quote a mate of mine (and club stalwart over the years) on asking him how the day was (sorry couldn't get there myself - maybe next time Russ)

"The young fella got last but loved every minute of the the 2 laps he did - he's still smiling"

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
