About Us

The Onslow Tarbabies is a Wellington based road cycling group with a focus on improving fitness and riding technique, riding safely and having fun.

The year round focus for the Tarbabies is the Round Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge, with most of our riders working to improve their previous best times.

 

Riders meet at 8am every Sunday morning the at the intersection of Baroda St, Box Hill and Station Road, Khandallah for a ride briefing, grouping by ability for regular training ride.

 

Safety Statement

The Onslow Tarbabies are a social riding group. If you choose to join us on a ride, you do so freely, at your own risk and you must agree to abide by all the road rules.

Each of us is expected to act in a manner that enhances the safety of the group and be responsible for their own safety. You must not rely on the actions or decisions of others in your group without checking for yourself whether any particular movement is safe (for example, calls that it is clear to cross an intersection). You must have a good level of cycling fitness, have a roadworthy bike that is regularly maintained, be confident and capable of riding your bike on often busy and dangerous roads. Any there is any rider who is uncomfortable with any of these conditions then it's probably best that you do not ride with the Tarbabies. 

 

Riders meet at the Khandallah Trading Company cnr of Agra Cres and Ganges Rd for a post ride debrief to share war stories and recovery with a drink or two  

 

Riders of all skill levels are welcome to join us. However if you are looking for ultra competitive riding and racing, there are other groups that may suit your needs better, such as PNP Cycling Club or Wellington Masters Cycling Club

 

There is no membership fee but you are expected to abide by the Tarbabies Ethos and Etiquette and purchase the club cycling kit.
