2024 Youth Road Cycling Series
Whether you’re an experienced Youth Cyclist or keen to have a crack at Road Cycling for the first time this series is a great opportunity to learn new skills, challenge yourself and have fun!

Who can take part?

  • Youth under the age of 19 years. Age Grades U19, U17, U15 & U13.
  • You’ll need to be confident riding on the road, know your road rules and be able to ride at least 8km non-stop.

What do I need to take part?

  • All you need is a great attitude!
  • You don’t need a road bike to take part, starting on your own bike is a great idea.  We have a small fleet of club road bikes available.

How does it work?

  • Graded Road Race Series starting opposite the Whanganui River Holiday Park on Wednesdays after School
  • We’ll race out and back along Papaiti Road
  • There will be a long course (max 20km) & short course (max 8km) options
  • Varied races to develop your skills and challenge you!
