We're celebrating the International Day of Older Persons with a Ride the Raceway event which is kindly supported by Cambridge Raceway. The event starts at 2pm and will allow riders to ride around the Cambridge Raceway circuit for as many times as they feel comfortable within a 40 minute timeframe.

The event is aimed at riders 60 years and older but younger persons may attend. Please be reminded this is not a race, it is an opportunity to ride the race track circuit in a safe environment in amongst other like-minded riders.

By registering to attend, you agree that you are of a reasonable level of fitness to cycle around the track and that your equipment (bike) is in good working order. You are also required to wear a helmet and enclosed footwear. Please also bring a bottle of water. Other safety items are optional.

Tea and coffee will be provided and we are hoping to have a special guest or two join us. The International Day of Older Persons is celebrated each year. This year it falls on Saturday 1 October. Our ride is on the 30th. St John will be onsite to provide any assistance should it be required. Ride the Raceway is part of Waipā District Libraries Get Active campaign which runs until December.

We appreciate the support of Cambridge Raceway. Event will be postponed in the event of bad weather. Those registered will be contacted in this event.
