The Manukau City Veterans Cycle Club is a recreational cycle club catering for beginners to experienced cyclists. We hold weekly rides in rural South Auckland to suit all abilities. There are friendly competitions and Time Trial events held every couple of months.
Full membership from age 30.
Associate membership (age 25-29) is available.

Camaraderie is a key reason for the club's success. We believe in looking out for each other. All new club members and visitors are fostered into the club by more experienced members. You won't be left behind to find your own way home.

The club was formed in 1992 to meet the needs of veteran cyclists in the South Auckland area. Today our 300+ strong membership also includes younger associate members and draws riders from the greater Auckland area.

WHEN AND WHERE ARE OUR RIDES?

The rides range in distance from 25 km to 80 km with at least one shorter route, one longer route and one fitness ride each week. You choose which ride you feel comfortable doing, depending on your fitness level and goals.

You are most welcome to try out our Sunday rides on two occasions for free. When doing so, we request that you complete a Visitors Form inside the Hall before heading out on the bunch ride. If you intend to join us regularly, we encourage you to join the club and pay the $25.00 annual subscription.

The ride courses vary from week to week and are along cyclist-friendly routes that generally avoid main roads.

Our Ride Programme reflects seasonality - it is less testing and shorter during the winter months, yet longer and more challenging in summer. It will also take you from team events to individual time trials, to the Glenbrook Vintage Railway Station, to barbecues and rides through some of New Zealand's beautiful countryside.

For members, the Ride Fee of $2.00 is payable each time you ride with the club. Tea, coffee, Milo and biscuits are provided at the conclusion of the ride.

WHO CAN JOIN MCVCC?

If you have a bike, $25.00, you're aged 25 or older and you have the desire, then you can join.

Both men and women are welcome.

To join the club, simply complete a Membership Form and pay the $25.00 annual subscription. This is a small price to pay to enjoy the benefits of being a club member, including participation in events and receiving regular newsletters and notices.

At MCVCC there are two types of membership:
Associate Membership (ages 25-29)
Full Membership (ages 30+)

HOW TO FIND OUT MORE:

The club caters for all levels of cyclists, from novice and recreational riders to the more competitive.

No matter what your ability, you will enjoy the supportive spirit of the club. This is a key element to encourage your and our enthusiasm for the sport. Enthusiasm is contagious and motivates us to get out there time and time again, even when the weather tries to tell us otherwise.

To find out more just turn up at the club on a Sunday morning at about 7:50am and introduce yourself. You'll be required to fill in a Visitors Form and hand it in before going riding.
Please note: On the second Sunday of every month, we either have a fun competitive event at the Ardmore Hall or a ride from a different location. Should you, as a non-member, wish to participate on such a second Sunday, please contact our Club President (Sue Pickles) for an explanation of what the scheduled event is.

The club usually meets at Ardmore Hall, which is on the corner of Burnside Road and Papakura-Clevedon Road, Ardmore, in South Auckland.

OTHER EVENTS AND SOCIAL FUNCTIONS:

Aside from the club programme, MCVCC members also ride in other organised cycling events, such as the annual 160 km ride around Lake Taupo, where members can ride either as individuals or as part of a relay team.

Through the year we have several organised social functions and recreational cycling trips. On the social side these include mid-winter and Christmas dinners. On the cycling side, we've had weekends away in Whangamata, National Park and Hastings (to name but a few) and tours of the Coromandel Peninsula and the East Cape. Ah, more beautiful New Zealand countryside!

Local and overseas visitors are especially welcome to join us for a ride when they are in Auckland.
