High cadence

Tuesday night the boys took part in the weekly "Taupo Cycle Club Open Night", a bike race held at the local racing track.
This week 143 riders turned up, all seeded into different groups. Women and men of all ages were riding, even kids as young as 10 took part.

The different groups did 4,6 or 8 laps around the track, each lap being about 3,6 km. Will and Nathan got placed in group C and they did 8 laps averaging a speed of 40km/hr (the top guys did 45km/hr).

Quite a different kind of riding to what they usually do, but they both seemed to enjoy the experience, and the athmosphere.
Sprinting to the finish:

Nice to get to move those legs!!
