Club Skin Suits
The school sports hub team have made contact with their agent at Tinelli. This link takes you to the options that can be produced in our club colours – get back to me if you have a preference before we make any orders. Like the club trisuits, we plan to purchase some for the club that you can hire, and you’re also welcome to buy your own.
South Island Secondary Schools’ Cycle Race
This event is being held on 6-7 July (the first weekend of the holidays). If you’re keen to attend, whether you’re going independently or would like to travel with the team, please fill out this form to help us plan:
If you’re a GPS user, we have developed specific Strava Segments for our training locations which are all collected on our site. Check them out to see where you stand on the league tables!

Our club is all about participation, and alongside the excellent commitment of the student athletes, we welcome family members and members of the community to join us in all of our training sessions. They’re designed to accommodate all levels and abilities and are a lot of fun.
