I was in at Revolution Cycles talking to Jonty today and he told me about this race that his buddy Asher is organising this Sunday. Unlucky for me (not really) I'll be in Auckland but if you are around Welly and feel like a bit of a hurt fest then show up at Revolution Bicycles (57b Northland Rd, Northland) at 8am and register. There's 60 points up for grabs. Oh and did I say it's free entry? Oh did I say there's no prize? More details below. Wellington Peaks Points Race
Sunday 3rd October Start 9am Register from 8am

Start and finish at Revolution Bicycles (57bNorthland Rd, Northland, WGTN)
You have six hours to collect as many points as you can. Fastest time with the most points wins. Points will be awarded for getting to the top of each of nine Wellington peaks.
