The Striders Multi-sports Club is on the lookout for new road cyclists. The Kerikeri club has a well-attended weekly ride every Sunday at 7.30am from the police station. The cyclists usually ride for three hours on a course of up to 90km. But for those seeking a less strenuous Sunday ride, they will launch a new 8am riding group on March 20 that is specially designed to cater for cyclists who are new to road cycling or for those who want to cycle at a more leisurely pace. The first part of the ride will involve a shorter loop that will return to Kerikeri township after about one hour. It s possible to leave the group there or to keep on going for another hour or two after that to the many and various destinations in the region. The main focus of this tra- ditional Sunday outing will be to ride at a pace that everyone will be able to handle. If you re keen to stretch yourself, new riders are also welcome to join the 7.30am group which provides a plat- form to build up to the level required to compete in an event like the Lake Taupo Cycle challenge. The Kerikeri Striders Multi-sports Club caters for all things athletic and has been growing recently with the involvement of junior ath- letics and an anticipated merging with the Kerikeri Indoor Rowing Club. The club now boasts its own clubrooms at the Kings- ton House complex. Another new venture is a sea kayaking group. Northland is blessed with some of the best coastline for sea kayaking in New Zealand and initially, the group will meet on Saturdays at Opito Bay for some group paddles. This will include skill- building sessions, Eskimo rolling training, rescue techniques and some over- night expeditions. See www.striders.co.nz for more information on these new activities. Northland dominate Harbour The Northland Maori Seniors who won the 2010 Northern Regions Maori competition showed that they really mean business again in 2011 with a resounding win over North Harbour on February 19 in Whangarei. The Northland pack started strongly and played a real combative game and dominated their opposition in the contact zone. Rugged Hikurangi loose forward Eric Wihongi scored the first try after 10 minutes and Otamatea first five, with Toby Phillips adding a pen- alty 3 minutes later. The score stayed 13 nil for the next 20 minutes but Northland retained pos- session and their powerful scrum wore down the Har- bour pack. Northland was 29 points to nil lead at halftime but after the break, North Harbour came back at Northland and managed to maintain some possession. Northland roared back at Harbour with left wing Jovan Harris from Wellsford scoring a sizzling try from halfway after 15 minutes. Willie Waa, a recent Hikurangi recruit, scored the try of the day after the North- land back line broke from their own 10 metre line with Waa racing away from the opposition at the 22 metre line spinning around and throwing a dummy at full flight to suck in the defence to score in the final minute of the game. The end result: Northland Maori Seniors 46; North Har- bour Maori Seniors 7. The best players for Northland included props Justin Davies and Atere Davis who dominated at scrum time and made ground each time they carried the ball up into the contact zone. No 6 Eric Wihongi was the most threat- ening ball carrier and No 7 Ethan Crutcher from Old Boys was very accurate and physical in defence. Captain Toby Phillips con- trolled the game well scoring 16 points. Home team wins tournament The winning team: From left, Chris Harris, Carmen Chiswell and Bob Wilson. The Okaihau Bowling Club held their C & D Wells Mem- orial mixed triples on Febru- ary 15 and this was sponsored by Mary and Bill from the Village Cafe in Okaihau. Ten teams from Kerikeri, Opononi, Kaikohe, Kawakawa and Okaihau enjoyed playing on a well- prepared green. The winners were the home team of Bob Wilson, Carmen Chiswell and Chris Harris and the runners-up were Bruce Shepherd, Tom Black and Cynthia Stephens. With many bowlers having to work during the week, the club thanks the teams for travel- ling to their tournaments.
