Clothing

Wearing Mount Aspiring colours is compulsory in this event. We have school cycle tops that can be collected from the Sports Hub. You can either wear black cycling shorts – or your club tri suit – along with the school top. You may also wear your PE T-shirt, though the drag this will create will put you at a disadvantage.

The weather is likely to be very cold on the day. Please look below at the team gear list and pack a lot of warm clothing.
