This Saturday’s club race at Akers Rd, number 4 of the Autumn series, a graded road race, has been postponed until the 2nd of April. This is because there is a clash with the School’s Cycling Camp which is also occurring over this coming weekend. The race on the 2nd will be just before the last race on the following morning at Linton Army Camp on Sunday 3rd. The presentations for the series will be held at the Army Camp after the final race.

Palmerston North City Council is investigating options for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the ManawatÅ« River to connect the city to Massey University and the Linton Army Camp. 

The Bridge will connect the City to a 6.6 kilometre shared pathway (called He Ara Kotahi) for cyclists and pedestrians on the left bank of the Manawatū River that will link the City, Massey University, Fitzherbert Science Centre, and the Linton Military Camp.
