Catering for Cyclists of All Abilities

At Matamata Peddlers' Cycling Club we have members varying in age and ability, who enjoy cycling with friendly people for leisure, pleasure, fitness and the challenge. We have pre-planned rides at different levels and distances, from fast, through to those who want to ease into cycling. Importantly, these are organised to try to get all riders finished and back to a cafe for a catch-up at about the same time, but at different levels of sweaty, from a light sheen (Group 4), to full on hairy Greek wrestler (Group 1).

Formed in 2005 the club is now in its 16th year of fun, social, healthy, cycling-related activities. This includes weekly rides on Wednesdays and Sundays, family fun events and support for members participating in national events such as the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge.

If you are just getting into cycling, or would like to, come along and learn how to ride safely in groups. You'll soon learn to love having someone in front of you breaking wind (for want of a better term). I can highly recommend Kev in this regard.

Challenge yourself! Come and join us this Sunday!

You'll always have a mate to ride with at Peddlers - no-one gets left to ride alone (or in Latin, no uni-cycles).

Join Us - Our new season started 1st July!

Our annual club subs are a low $50 per person or $80 per family. For less than $1 a week you'll get a guarantee of great company, organised rides, subsidised gear and Club events like after-ride BBQs, family days and support for riders tackling events such as Taupo! Where else can you get all that for a dollar!!!???

Come along and try us on for size! You are welcome to join our group rides as a visitor for a short time (e.g 3 rides).

If you decide that Peddlers spins your wheels (sorry) and want to ride with us regularly, we encourage you to complete a membership form and officially join our friendly little club.

Summer's Coming!!!

Lockdown gave you an excuse to get the bike out, so don't send it to the back of the shed again! If you put air in the tyres for the first time in years in April, or perhaps you've just moved to our great district, join us on Sunday at 09:00 for our weekly Club Ride and keep those wheels turning! Summer's on the way and there's no better way to see our beautiful district than on a bike!
