We will be advising our calendar of events to celebrate this amazing achievement at the end of year Christmas lunch function.

However, the Anniversary committee, along with fantastic design input from Di Michels, is offering a unisex short sleeve memento cycle shirt – See attachment.

There is also a measurement chart for sizing.

It is suggested that you measure an existing shirt you currently use and check it against the chart for the correct size to order.

Cost is $75 – last day for orders is 25th Nov this year. Delivery will be in Feb next year

These will be great shirts for members to wear not only here in NZ but also to promote your club overseas whenever you are travelling further afield.

We have a ride planned for Sunday 24 February to celebrate the exact date we reach 70! We hope to have as many people as possible out riding wearing the shirt!

Please action this ASAP.
