Whenever you go off touring by bike you need to get in touch with others.
To help keep the roads and paths you ride on safe you can also contact your local councils.
This area has links to a handful of sites we think are worthwhile visiting. If you know of others contact the webmaster.
Many bike shops will give discounts to club members if you identify yourself as a member of ACTA.

Click on the logo below to take a look at the Manukau Vets.   While we would prefer that you ride with us, MCVCC rides every Sunday in South Auckland (and will offer you some friendly, not too serious, gentle competition once a month).   And you have the bonus of being able to be home on Sunday afternoon to be responsible.
