Wainuiomata Hill Climb
It was excellent weather for the inaugural Hill Climb up the Wainuiomata Hill on the 2nd August.
The first ever records were set for schools cycling and I believe some strava records were also made on the day. It's well done and congratulations to the younger riders for making the effort to climb such a large hill - everyone made it to the top! Some stats show the hill averages 10.3%, with the steepest part at 16%!
Below you will be able to see the new records set for agegroups. The idea is to go out and try to beat your own times over the coming year and come back next year to claim your personal best time and maybe a new record.
This coming Sunday is the 2nd Teams Time trial - 16th August
Once again, come on out and set a Personal Best (PB) or try to beat your Individual, 2up or full-team PB.
Younger riders can have an escort throughout their ride.
Please enter by emailing Gary by Friday, stating your Name, Agegroup, Team (if any) and School.

Final Teams Time Trial - 13th September
The event will only be a 4up teams event (Timed on the 3rd rider across the line, so technically 3 riders can be a team). A composite team is allowed providing you're in the same agegroup. Riders can ride up an agegroup to make a team of 4. Agegroups are Year 7-8, U16 and U20. Please start asking around to try and make up a team.

Welcome back to Term 3 of Schools Cycling.
Over the school holidays there was the Agegroup Club Road Champs. This is a non-schools event for riders representing their Clubs. Wellington had 7 riders representing the PNP Cycling Club with two riders bringing home 3 medals in total. This has been one of Wellingtons best Road Champs in many years and shows the extreme work ethic our riders go to, to perform at such a high level. Well done to Camden Feint, Silver medal in the U19 Individual Time Trial and Millie Donald, also Silver in the U15 ITT, plus a Bronze Medal in the U15 Road Race. Both riders go to schools on the Kapiti Coast.
Wgtn Schools Hill Climb Champs - Gracefield, Lower Hutt
Sunday, 2nd August 2020 at 9am - 10:30am Note: Gracefield Rd can be busy - it is recommended to bring wind-trainers or rollers to warm-up on, otherwise riding in the Southern part of Gracfield Rd is advised (beyond the round-about, away from main route to Wainuomata).

Sorry everyone, but this years calendar is going to have it's problems being finalised due to obvious reasons. We've had to re-jig the calendar to fit in with some of the Wellington Cycling Clubs getting their calendars in order.
Basically we're swapping the dates of the HIll Climb Champs with the Hope Gibbons Team Time Trial event. Also added is the National Schools MTB Champs, being held in Wellington.
Next Sunday - June 21 is the First Time Trial event:
This event earns points towards your school (as do all the other events). At the end of the season there are three trophys to hand out. One for the Year 7-8 category, one for the U16 agegroup and another for the U20 agegroup:
