As Bike Manawatu Club Chairman and a board member of four years I am stepping down as chairman at this year’s AGM. I feel satisfied I have given something back to our club in a positive way during my board tenure along with five years of school cycling with my son and daughter. The platform is set for our new and passionate board to bring fresh ideas that will take our club to the next level. I will remain actively involved with our club doing other helpful things behind the scenes.

At the AGM I will introduce you to the new Bike Manawatu board. Mike Craine, Tim Lloyd, James Denholm, Andrew Ward, Michelle Turner, Megan Blatchford-Peck and Dan McKay. Also our outstanding new club secretary in Keryn Paekau who runs our club professionally. As a team we meet once per month for our board meetings, and in-between we are talking and communicating by email on decisions that are in the best interest of the club.
Your club is in good hands going forward.

WCNI InterClub Champs- Halcombe

pjimage 13pjimage 13
The success of InterClub racing has always been talked about for years by older passionate club members as being the best part of their cycling lives on and off the bike. Last weekend at Halcombe we witnessed that social aspect for keen cyclist aged from 13 to 78 years old from five different clubs who travelled to ride our Bike Manawatu InterClub Champs graded races. The day was then topped off with afternoon tea for everyone where the enjoyment really is for many. A great day was had by all.

The sun was shining, the 20km course was magic and everyone had an outstanding day on and off the bike. Graded races over,20,40,60,80km catered for everyone’s ability, age and stage of experience.

For some reason recreational riders who have built up mileage and experience remain uneasy about coming along to local club or InterClub rides. Last weekend confirmed how popular these days are and we would love to see more members involved in.
It is great fun, great training and riders and their supporters are not traveling long distances to stay overnight at exorbitant costs. Club members only pay $10 to enter which is a big bonus.
Next time up "Challenge yourself" and encourage your cycling buddies to join you for our upcoming club races. You and they might like it? In fact, we know you will.

Commonwealth Games success for Campbell Stewart and Michaela Drummond

1 IMG 57551 IMG 5755

One year ago I made the decision to book tickets for Michelle and I to the Commonwealth Games 2018 in the hope our young Bike Manawatu stars Campbell Stewart and Michaela Drummond would gain selection.
Last week that decision was justified when the world was exposed to the class of Campbell and Michaela who both gave everything they could give on the track to represent themselves their families and New Zealand against some of the best track cyclists in the world.
As it happens it was the first time we had ever watched track cycling in a velodrome apart from the Feilding track where it all began for Campbell and Michaela under the watchful eye of Ian Gray. For us to watch it with the extended Stewart family and friends was a sensational adrenalin rush never to be forgotten for which we thank the Stewart family for.
2 IMG 57272 IMG 5727
160 laps of racing at a ferocious pace that required total concentration and intelligence to be in the right position to capitalise on sprint points is thrilling and totally draining to watch as a spectator. You could feel the pain in the riders legs as they were forever sprinting to go with others or to win points. When these cyclists finished many could hardly walk. Brutal is the only word we could use to describe this level of international competition for our two young stars.
Campbell produced two incredible silver medal performances and Michaela a fantastic race to finish tenth in a world class field. Both remarkable results to be proud of for the club and in particular the track club members.

Both Campbell Stewart and Michaela Drummond have been through the Bike Manawatu and Manawatu Schools cycling system and now are representing New Zealand is a testament to their dedication and commitment to the sport. Along with their families unwavering support and their fellow schools and club members support we can all be proud of Manawatu as a great place to cycle.

Tune into my interview with Campbell at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday after 8pm on

Bike Manawatu - Invitation to Riders and Non-Riders

For those who have experienced giving something back to an organisation or sport you are involved in is hugely satisfying. For those who haven't yet experienced this, we offer you an opportunity to find out more and how to go about giving back to your club as a part time rostered volunteer or board member.

For me, after following my cycling son and daughter around local and national events for five years and now coming up to my fifth year on the Bike Manawatu board, two years as Chairman, I feel satisfied I have given something back to cycling. However, it is time for me to step down as Club Chairman and a board member at the AGM on the 28 April and let new people and fresh ideas take the club to the next level. I will remain actively involved with our club doing other helpful things.

Bike Manawatu now extend an invitation to any rider or non-rider who feels ready to give some of your time back to our club by expressing an interest and talk to us.

We have an outstanding team of people on the Bike Manawatu board- Mike Craine, Tim Lloyd, James Denholm, Andrew Ward, new board members Michelle Turner and Megan Blatchford-Peck and myself. We also have an outstanding club secretary in Keryn Paekau. Together we meet once per month for our board meetings, and in-between talking we communicate by email on decisions in the best interest of the club.
The volunteers roster always comes down to select few people who have put their hand up to help run events and be left to continue running events. By you offering to join our club roster list, all cyclist will benefit including yourself. Share in the experience.

Commonwealth Games-Campbell Stewart and Michaela Drummond

pjimage 10pjimage 10

Given we have two of our club members competing at the Commonwealth Games and their families and friends supporting them at the games, I have decided to join them and write this newsletter from the Gold Coast Australia where the excitement is building.
Both Campbell Stewart and Michaela Drummond have been through the Bike Manawatu and Manawatu Schools cycling system and now are representing New Zealand which is a testament to their dedication and commitment to the sport. Along with their families unwavering support and their fellow school riders and club members support we can all be proud of Manawatu as a great place to cycle.
As I write this email Campbell Stewart had just ridden himself into the team pursuit bronze medal ride off against Canada which was exciting race to watch. At only 19 years old Campbell is already footing it with the best in the world. On Sunday evening he is in the points race. Michaela rides tomorrow and is a super exciting rider with natural speed and talent to burn. Live track racing is incredible, and we wish Campbell and Michaela and their supporter all the very best regardless of the results and trust this experience sets them up for future international competitions.
I have enjoyed the first day here in the Gold Coast with John and Sue Obrien who's daughters Connie and Rosie are successful Bike Manawatu and Schools cyclists. What an experience.
