Hi Eric

The cycling scene in Wellington is quite vibrant and has been somewhat rejuvenated in the past year or two. There is track, road and mountain bike cycling available all year round. You have obviously visited our site which will give you a feel for what the Wellington Vets do. the other site to visit is www.pnp.org.nz. This is a club open to all comers (as opposed to 35 years plus) but many of the vets are also members of the PNP club as well. PNPis affiliated to BikeNZ and we are looking at our options for this so you can compete in NZ based events with your BikeNZ license. Wellington is very central and apart from the odd windy day (most other New Zealanders will say gale force) riding is very accessible all year round. I believe PNP had 128 riders in their opening event last Saturday.
