The cycling club includes both road cycling and mountain biking, and many students compete in both disciplines. Cycling at St Peter’s is open to all students from years 7 to 13.
- Mountain Biking trains and competes throughout the year – with the first race usually in March. In 2022 the first race is on Sunday 12 March at Riverhead.
- The Road Cycling season primarily focuses on Terms 2 and 3 – with training starting in Term 1.
We encourage anyone interested to register with the school through the registration form link above – and then contact the coaching coordinators about upcoming training, learn-to-ride or race events.2023 Handbook (PDF to provided)
If you are new to Mountain Biking, a muster for new riders will be held on Sunday 5 March. If you register with the school as a new rider, the coach will get in touch with more information about the muster.
To be on the Mountain Biking team, you must have experience riding a mountain bike on mountain bike trails – and participate in regular training and competitions.
MTB training is on Sunday mornings, usually at Woodhill – although we train in other locations around Auckland in preparation for races. Parents are encouraged to join in training sessions if they are riders.
The MTB season is built around a series of five schools-only races between early March and late August. There are other races during the year open for students to race, including North Island Schools and Nationals competitions.
If you are new to Road cycling we encourage you to give it a go by coming along to the Muster at Ambury Farm on 5 March at 2pm. We will invite you to the Learn to Road ride sessions. If you don’t have a bike there are a limited number that can be borrowed.
Road Cycling competitions
The road racing season primarily focuses on a series of Team Time Trials, which are held on Sunday mornings. There are also a number of individual events like Points Races. Later in the year, there are other events, including the North Island Championships, Northern Tour and the National Championships.
