What’s the Road Summer Series?
It’s a graded summer twilight road racing series over the Western Line circuit (approx. 11km) & Papaiti Time Trial course for Youth, eBike and Adult riders.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced rider or new to the sport – our popular series caters for everyone!
Can I take part if I am new to Cycling?
You don’t have to be a WCC member to take part, but afterwards you’ll want to!
