Summer season starts
Top Gear Cycles TriSport Taupo¯’s summer season begins on the evening of Monday, October 15 with a run/road bike/run duathlon from AC Baths Ave beside the squash club.
By popular demand we are returning to the course where the club started back in 1988. The duathlon is suitable for all ages and abilities although we recommend that pre high schoolers be accompanied by an adult. There will be two courses of 1km/10km/1km and a 1.8km/10km/1.8km. A roadworthy bike and helmet is essential. Registration is from 5.30pm with the race start at 6pm. Entry is free for the first two weeks of the season and $5 per night after that. We encourage all to become club members which provides free season race entry. Online club membership is available at www.trisporttaupo.co.nz. The club’s calendar of 17 events through to late March includes a mixture of duathlons, triathlons (swim/bike/run) and aquathons (swim/run) on road and off road courses. There is a Top Gear Cycles spot prize draw after each event.
