Club kit and maps

Deliveries of new club kit are due in November and the shop will re-open for another order run soon, watch this space. In the meantime if you are looking for stocking stuffers what about a waterproof A3 trail map or microfiber manky map? Waterproof A3 maps $5 each avail from most local bike shops and Nelson i-SITE. (Village Cycles, Gravity Nelson, The Bike Station, Alton Street Cycles, My Ride Richmond, Evo Cycles Nelson).

Manky $21.95 (incl postage) online from the NMTBC website or $19.95 from most local bike shops. (Village Cycles, Gravity Nelson, The Bike Station, Alton Street Cycles, My Ride Richmond). The map has Codgers (plus Fringed Hill) one side and Sharlands on the other.

The club needs a volunteer to help co-ordinate our events, here’s the information about this role

Young Rider Scholarships

The club has awarded a total of $2000 to three young up a coming riders: Sam Henderson (aged 13) , Florence McNabb  (aged 15) and Kiran Taylor (aged 14). Watch out for riders profiles on all three to come out in the near future. They all were either, stoked, privileged or found it unreal to be given these awards and we all look forward to seeing these guys progress and supporting more young riders in future.
