Overview (please note that this information may change at any time and is meant as a guide only)
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.
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 Robert McIntyre.
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 2014/15 season begins on 2nd October 2014. Cost to enter each race is just $2.
Start Times: The final entry time for Juniors is 5.50pm with a start time of 6pm and for the seniors 6.20pm with a start time of 6.30pm.
Membership Fees: $5 for juniors & $15 for seniors. Prospective members must pay their subscription before they ride their second race. In addition to the sub, for the 2011/12 season and beyond members must hold a Bike New Zealand Licence.
Feel free to have a ride and enjoy the race but if you like it and want to continue then you know the story: no subscription or licence, no race.
