Winter 2024 Newsletter

“Weather is not an obstacle”.

How amazing have these autumn days been and

soon winter will be upon us and the search for an

extra layer, arm warmers, knee / leg warmers, a

heavier jacket, ear warmers ….

Yes, the official winter season is on our doorstep.

To assist with your winter cycling the committee

has agreed to have a HUGE SALE and discount all

our cycling kit. This is a great opportunity to

obtain Tasman Wheelers items at very low prices

– keep an eye on the website under "buy Club kit" for

all updated prices.

Racing

The winter programme has been completed, and

we are very excited to offer an amazing race

cycling programme that includes a “Winter series”

with prize money, and no doubt other spot prizes.

The programme/race Calendar is on the homepage

Certainly, we have listened to rider feedback, and

hopefully everyone will participate and encourage

others to join the fun.

With the calendar is also the latest roster for

members and maybe a few non-members for race

management duties. Please check to see when

you are helping – thanks.

This is also an optimum time to congratulate the 7

members who attended the Age Group

Championships in Timaru in April.

Every single person equipped themselves

admirably and performed strongly. Thanks to Ray

Hewlett who was our team manager, and

congrats to Symon Mitchell, Hans Bauer, and Ray

for their medals. Cameron Beaumont also

performed admirably finishing 5 th .

There have also been some other outstanding

cycling results by many members, led by Cameron

in Australia, Le Race, and second at Around

Brunner.

Congrats to everyone else who compete at

Around Brunner.

We also continue to see amazing results from Finn

and Niamh Fisher-Black , George Bennett, and it was

also great following our trio riding and racing in

Canada – Finn Mitchell, Cameron Jones and Seamus

O’Donnell – some great footage and stories of

their stage race on their fb pages.
