Pedal Talk November

Kia Ora

To all fellow bike junkies, did you realize its only just over 4 weeks till Christmas, what a scary thought!! This is just a quickie newsletter to remind you all about your very important Bike Taupo memberships for 2015.  So, before you all get totally out of control with the mad Christmas rush, office parties and New Year holiday plans, remember to jump online from 1st December (not before) to renew your membership.  Go online here fill in your info and we will post you out a groovy tag to pimp your ride. Or alternatively you can call into any bike store in town, Whitewater World or the Hub Cafe and join up there with cash payments only. Big thanks again to Tony at Taupo Lock and Key for his generous sponsorship of these tags, they will look great on our bikes 🙂

Also remember the membership form is a dual form combined with the Taupo Mountain Bike Club, this means you have the option of joining both Bike Taupo and the Mountain Bike Club for the same great price.  Bike Taupo supports the Mountain Bike Club with $15 of the adult sub and $20 of a family sub going to the Mountain Bike Club. Please tick the box on the form to join.

Dont forget also you can select your own personal tag number by donating to our give a little page, donations received via this page are going towards the building of the new "Budda" track, a downhill blast with structures and jumps for the ultimate thrill seeker! Please include your name and email in case the number you select has already gone. See details below.

We would also like to offer you a little incentive to get in early and get your registration done.  Every membership completed online before the end of January will go into the draw to win one of 10 Great Lake Trail Tee shirts.  Good luck 🙂

Our Track crew have been very busy boys the last few weeks getting ready for the Cycle Challenge.  I am sure all you roadies will be praying for the wind to die down or at least hoping that it will be blowing in the right direction! The Huka is going to be a challenge this year as always, some big names coming to Taupo to race, sure it will be all very exciting to watch and be involved in, town will be a madhouse!! If you havent entered yet, there are lots of options and you have until tomorrow to do so online, check it our here, good luck if you have already committed, have a great ride 🙂
