Pedal power

24 Jul 2018

Seven keen College cyclists headed to Timaru to participate in the South Island schools time trial and road race championships on the weekend of 7–8 July.

While cycling is still something of a niche sport at College, Year 13 student and head of cycling Sean Swanson says it would be good to see it grow. “It’s great for fitness, it’s tactical and challenging, and it’s fun. Cycling’s also one of the more social sports. Students from all over Christchurch participate in Wednesday racing, so it’s a good way to get to know people from other schools.”

There are many events for secondary school cyclists and, with the national school road championships being held in Christchurch later in the year, the College team is gearing up for a memorable cycling season.
