6th Tranz Alpine Scooter Safari – 19th May

Hello Everyone,

As a lot of you will know I have ridden this event previously, 3 times in fact and on 19th May I shall be riding it again. For those who may not know the reason it is to raise funds for the Cancer Society – Canterbury/Westland Branch and I will be doing it on a 50cc scooter. Leaving Ruapuna and riding 250kms to Hokitika come rain, sun, hail, wind, snow or whatever weather is thrown at us. And there will 250 other souls doing the same thing.

Why not come out to Ruapuna on the Saturday morning to support and watch 250 scooters going round the track. You will never see 250 of anything else doing that all at one time…………

This is a very worthwhile cause and provides help and support to a great number of people. Any donations would be gratefully accepted and as a wee sweetener online donations over $5 are eligible for a tax refund. 

Below is the link to my fundraising page and I would like to thank you in advance: https://scootersafari2018.everydayhero.com/nz/john-1

Cheers All

Summer Series Round 4 Hurunui Bluffs Rd March 2018

Summer Series Round 4, Hurunui Bluffs 11 March 18

Twenty keen looking riders gathered at the Hurunui Bluffs a few kilometers downstream from the Hurunui Hotel. This was a cracker spot on a calm sunny day, with plentiful shade available on the sections. Proceedings commenced by popular demand with a bike set- up session run by Glenn Smith, who provided useful tips regarding bar and lever positions, desirable fittings, control adjustments and Tyre pressures.

Glenn and Derek then continued to support riders with tips on how to negotiate trickier spots, boosting both rider confidence and forward progress in general. Sections were varied and interesting, combining pine needles, gravel, creek beds, mud, logs, rock and roots, with a couple of climbs thrown in to keep things interesting, and enjoyable rides between. The yellow climb on Section 4 provided the Clubman riders with some quality entertainment, and the root- strewn climb on section 10 looked like a real challenge for higher grades. One rider had a refreshing moment in the creek on section 7 and I can vouch for the softness of the pine needles on Section 2.

Well done to the low scorers, of note was Kade’s smooth and controlled looking ride in Clubman A. A well- run and memorable day, thanks to Josh, Glenn and Derek.

The club thanks John Phillips for the above article.
