Catering for Cyclists of All Abilities

Matamata Peddlers Cycling Club is a group of cyclists varying in ages and ability who enjoy cycling in good company for leisure, pleasure and for the challenge.

Formed in 2005 the club is growing rapidly, with over 100 financial members to-date.

If you are just getting into cycling, come along and learn how to cope with riding in groups.

It is important for people contemplating riding with Matamata Peddlers to understand what we are about - which is safety, fun, improving fitness, and comradeship. Click here for some cycling safety tips.

We don't leave anyone stranded and out there on their own.

Wednesday Evening Ride Route Change Trial

The Committee are currently trialling a change to the regular Wednesday evening ride routes. The objective is to keep riders away from Hopkins Rd and Hinuera Rd as they are getting increasingly busy and we have had a number of incidents on those roads this year and in previous years.

As mentioned by Henry (the Club President), on Wednesday evening, the trial routes are basically the same as the current routes except when you get to Conders corner do a u-turn, ride back the way you came and turn right down Station Rd. Contest the sprint finish (if that's your thing) at the 50kph speed limit sign right on the town boundary.

We will trial the new routes for the next few weeks. If you wish to provide feedback, or suggest alternative routes (keeping in mind we must cater for four different riding groups), please email James.
