To enter any of the 2017 Fred Ogle Memorial Rides click the link below to navigate to the online entry page.


New for 2017 to improve safety for riders the courses have been  changed a little but everything else stays the same.  “Mates Rates” discounted online entries apply again. If you entered the event in 2016 and you can encourage 1 or more of your friends or family members who didn’t ride the event in 2016 to enter with you, you will get half price entry into the 2016 event. Your friends and/or family members entering with you will also receive half price entry into the events they enter. If you want to take advantage of this before you enter you just need to email  Stu.Bell@xtra.co.nz with the names of your friends and/or family members you are entering with and you will be sent a unique code only you and those named with you can use to receive half price entries. Remembering you must be the only participant from the 2016 event listed in your group. This is only applicable for online entries with the exception of the Michael Springford Family Ride flat fee for family entries which are also included but still require a hard copy entry form to be filled out. It does not apply to late entries. If you didn’t ride in 2016 and know someone that did you might want to give them a call.

Again also please email Stu.Bell@xtra.co.nz  for a family entry form for the Michael Springford 12.5km Family fun ride, or pick one up from AvantiPlus Whangarei. Unfortunately family entries cannot be accommodated in the online entry system. There must be one adult riding with each family entry and can be any combination of parents and their children or Grandparents and grandchildren. Spot prizes for the 12.5 km riders will again be drawn at 11:30am. Start times and format remain unchanged for the 2016 event. Individuals can still enter the 12.5km ride online.

For Bike Northland Club affiliated members again you must enter online if you want to compete in the Northland Championship events.
