Club Snap shot - Morrinsville Wheelers
10 Jan, 2007 - AT

The rolling pastures of the Waikato have been the training and racing grounds for 43years for the Morrinsville Wheelers Cycling Club.  Start in 1964, the club has produced many New Zealand representatives, including Jack and Stephen Swart, Tom Bamford, Julian Dean, Double Olympian Roz Reekie-May, Mark May, and most recently Eliot Crowther. 

Club secretary Bev May was the first woman to hold a racing licence in New Zealand and has been the stalwart leader of the club, and promoting women’s cycling through her annual two day tour.  The New Zealand Road Nationals have been held in Morrinsville three times and the club's Open is one of New Zealand's oldest surviving races.

The Wheelers have a club website www.morrinsvillewheelers.org.nz which is perhaps one of the most well presented, and maintained club websites in New Zealand with regular up-dates, results, photos and projects on the go.  Their latest project includes raising funds to build a velodrome in Morrinsville.  The club has a strong history in track cycling despite the long haul to Te Awamutu, Hamilton or Auckland to race and train.

With weekly Tuesday night club racing beginners get a chance to have a go, and the club is very good at taking on those new to the sport, no matter what their age, and helping them develop their skills which is the perfect setting to progress from recreational fun rides to racing.  So if you are keen to give it a go see the club website or contact info@morrinsvillewheelers.org.nz
