We regret to inform you that the Rolling Plains mini tour scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday 23rd July, has been cancelled due to forecasts of heavy rainfall ranging from 70 to 120mm, and a heavy rain warning in place. Based on these predictions, it would not be safe to continue with the event.

We always want the day of the event to be a fun experience for everyone involved, and not a recipe for hypothermia.

We appreciate all the effort entrants have put into preparing for this event, and we are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

In the coming days, all entry fees will be refunded.

We look forward to welcoming you back next year, and making the event another memorable experience for everyone.

An email has been sent to all registered riders.

Thank you.

Amanda and the team from Tinwald Cycling Club

Our junior (U17) Winter Development programme starts this Sunday. This is an opportunity for juniors, aged from 8 to learn the basics of road riding and be involved in short distance road races, including time trialling. Children under 10 will need to be accompanied by an adult. The club has a lot of small road bikes available for any young children who want to give this a go and do not have their own road bikes. Some larger bikes for any parents that would like to borrow one to be able to keep up with their kids are also available. The first race is being held this Sunday at 1:30pm on Fords Road, Tinwald. The entry fee is $2 per week. Please call Amanda on 0275161379 or Don Kirdy 03 3072706 if you would like any more information.
