On 19th hole Kaa was triumphant and topped off a great round to win and take the haggle with 48 stableford points.

Group tackles twin coast trail Traverse: Making the most of the twin coast cycle trail from Okaihau to Kaikohe. On Rugby World Cup final day a small and enthusiastic crowd set off to run or walk 13.4 kilometres from Okaihau to Kaikohe. A second group chose a shorter course of 8.4 kilometres. The Rotary Club of Kaikohe organised the fun run/walk on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail- Pou Herenga Tai on October 23. The participants passed along the scenic trail which gradually climbs to a peak near Kaikohe and passes through an old rail tun- nel before descending to the township. A short passage along State Highway 12 led to the finish at Mid North Motor Inn where runners and walkers could relax with re- freshments while they waited for the prize- giving at noon. The event is great preparation for the Kerikeri Half Marathon on November 19. It is planned to make it an annual event that can grow as the cycle trail grows to its coast to coast completion. The Twin Coast Cycle Trail-Pou Herenga Tai provides a safe off-road exercise course by cycle or on foot through some great scenic countryside. Visit www.kaikohe rotary.org for more information on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail-Pou Herenga Tai.

Get on your bike for Bike Wise month Cycling season is here and it s time to shake off those winter blues, head outdoors and start riding. To give potential peddlers a bit of a push-start, the NZ Transport Agency is celebrating the 10th year of its annual Bike Wise pro- gramme. February is Bike Wise Month, but there s no need to wait until then to begin enjoying all of the benefits biking brings. Dusting off the bike could be the best decision people make this summer, and with the Bike Wise campaign featuring more events than ever, plus workshops to get your gear shipshape, there are plenty of reasons to give it a go, NZTA spokesman Andy Knackstedt says. To ensure you have a bike in good working order, Bike Wise is launching the Big Bike Fix Up, with the target of getting 5000 previously unloved bikes back on the road through a series of local events. Each event will be held throughout spring and summer and offer free safety checks for those who bring their bikes along. Once your bike has been checked out it s time to get riding. The Christmas hol- iday period is a great chance to work the rust out of those legs in preparation for the first big event of the 10th Anniversary Bike Wise Month -- Go By Bike Day. This one-day event takes place on February 1, 2012 with thousands of people leaving their cars behind for the day to cycle to work. There are numerous events taking place with details appearing on the website www.bikewise.co.nz.
