Popular cycle ride series rolls around
The eighth annual Winter Fun Rides cycling event will start in Matamata next Sunday.
With 50 and 80km courses, the ride is open to recreational cyclists and age-group competitors.
Consecutive events will also be held in Cambridge on August 19 and Hamilton on August 26.
Event director Stephen Cox said the event had become a permanent fixture in the Waikato cycling calendar.
‘‘This is an event that anyone can do. Last year, we had 200 to 300 competitors take part in each of these events, which made for a great atmosphere,’’ he said.
Cyclists can enter in one, two or all three events.
Spot prizes are awarded across the board, as well as cash prizes for the first three in each event.
The Winter Fun Rides series supports the Westpac Waikato Air Ambulance.
