The Leeston Cycle Club encourages a family friendly environment with the emphasis being on having fun, making it enjoyable for all those involved and participating to the best of your ability.
2017 - 2018 Season
First race of the season is Thursday 28 September and will be a self handicapped to allow riders to assess their fitness after the winter break.
Points series begins the week after.
If riding home after the race, make sure you have lights - be seen and be safe.
28 Sep 2017: 2017/18 season starts.
Thursday evening is the only day of the week events are held other than the Leeston Classic. These races are held over the period of Daylight Saving.
No prize money is on offer for our normal Thursday night rides with the exception of the "DB Cup" which is raced for on the final night of the season. The current holder of the DB Cup is Jake Marryatt.
The races are held over a 16km open road circuit, starting at The Leeston Rugby Football Club carpark and finishing on Lake Road in Leeston (the start and finish lines are approximately 1km apart). The 2016/17 season will start on 29 September 2016. Cost to enter each race is just $2.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Start Times: The final entry time for Social and Development is 5.50pm with a start time of 6pm and for the Seniors 6.20pm with a start time of 6.30pm.
For those wanting a good warm up before the race and warm down after, a group of riders leave from the Lincoln roundabout on Springs Rd at approximately 5:20 p.m. Bring your lights for the ride home as there is little light by the time the group gets back to Lincoln.
Cancellations: While every effort will be made to put a note on the website if the Thursday night racing is cancelled, it may not always be possible. Please check/subscribe to the Facebook or Strava pages, or text one of the Club’s officers.
Prize Money: The first male and female winners of the open points series competition will each receive $200. The winner of the Social and Development points series completion (regardless of sex) will receive $50.
