Matamata Chronicle - - News -

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.
