Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge
30 November 2019

After alot of deliberating Ive decided that the risk of running the squad at the moment - with attitudes towards cyclists being quite bad in Wellington - is too high for me to take on.  I have loved being able to offer this unique group/program for 12years, but for now I am going to take a bench and re-assess in 2020.  I will still have 1 on 1 training packages/programs, or if you need some guidance on a suitable group for you, please dont hesitate to contact me. 
For experienced riders we will be meeting once or twice a week for casual rides, so please join our Facebook group to find out more information.  Otherwise - see you on the road :)  Dee

GearShifters is the only cycling group that offers a comprehensive cycle package and supported training throughout the duration of the squad.  You wont be left to fend for yourself, or dropped never to see your bunch again, but we teach you everything you need to know in case you were.  We make sure you are riding with a group that is YOUR pace, YOUR ability, and is guided by knowledgeable trainers.  And you will grow together.  BUT don't be fooled this squad will work you hard.

GearShifters is a cycle training squad for men and women, beginner to intermediate cyclists. This is open to both members of Les Mills and non-members.

This includes our Saturday training ride, where you will be fully supported by seasoned trainers.  You won't be left behind and will meet a whole heap of like minded people to train with.

Each training squad package has an end goal of completing a cycle event challenge.
