  • Cancer Ride Postponment

    Cancer Baton Ride Postponed 24 hours

    *Ride now postponed till Sunday 4th*

    The warnings are out and the risks are high...Wind Gusts/Rain/Debris
    It is unwise and dangerous to ride in such conditions.
    I have pm'd all Regional Leaders and they are in agreement.

    The weather system will be gone by the time our feet hit the floor on Sunday and I believe that is the better/safer day to do this ride.


    All times and stops remain in place...see ya there.

      ''MetService meteorologist Daniel Corbett said a deep and vigorous low would pass over the North Island.

      "This is a serious situation and poses a weather hazard for many North Island places. Gales are expected over all of the North Island. These may be severe and damaging in some areas, particularly on Saturday morning."

      Corbett said the forecasters still had to see the whites of the storm's eyes, but the wind could reach 120kmh and sea swells 6-8 metres.

      The gale-force northerly winds would be followed by a rough south-westerly.

      Corbett said it would also be cold, with temperatures generally lower than normal.

      "This is a recipe for cold driving rain," Corbett said. "Those who are out and about on Saturday are likely to describe the conditions with words like 'miserable' or 'atrocious'."

      There are many times when deep and vigorous is just whatcha need, but not when it comes to a weather system.....
