Club Event

Marsden Wheelers Social Evening 7:00 pm

Narnia Cafe  


When: Friday 4th September
Where: Narnia Cafe
Time: 7pm-9pm

We are having a bit of a get together to meet new members, see others in something other than cycle kit, and to hear a bit about The Tour of New Zealand - South Island Stage from Bob and Mike who competed in this earlier in the year in some extremely tough conditions.
We also Have Grant telling us a little about his South Island tour by bike, training he did, gear to take (as it had to be carried all on the bike) and some of the conditions and issued he faced.
So please come along and bring your wallet for a coffee, drink, and some delicious Narnia food or a light meal. Its a good chance to talk to others in the club about their riding and maybe get a few tips from other riders around you.
Hope to see you all there.
