Arch Hill Spin Postponed

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it! We have decided to postpone the Arch Hill Spin and Club Xmas Party till the New Year. Thanks to all those who entered and were planning to enter today. Also a big thanks to all the organisers who got early txt messages this morning. As they say – ‘there is more fun to be had in the sun’ and the Arch Hill Spin is all about the fun so we want to maximise this. See you in the New Year!

Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Cycleway

Long-time club supporter Bruce Chambers has let us know about a new cycleway that Auckland Transport are working on. It will follow the Eastern Rail line for 7kms to Tamaki Drive. which will link Auckland University Tamaki Campus with the city. It will be on one side of the Purewa Stream and they hope at a future date to add a trail on the other side so as to make a figure 8 with a cross over at a proposed new station half way along.

Auckland Transport have organised a meeting on Saturday 22 November 2014; Timed 8.30 am to 12 noon at St Chads Church, 38 St Johns Rd Meadowbank in the form of an Open Day to explain it.
