Matawai School bike event

Located on the upper reaches of the Motu River on State Highway 2 between Gisborne and Opotiki lies Matawai School. 

With only 65 students everyone tends to get in behind the school activities and so when they approached PF Olsen for support we were only too happy to help.

At the time of the event there was logging underway with trucks carting on Wharekopae Rd so PF Olsen supplied a radio to the school, as did Logic.  This meant the School could have a lead vehicle and a tail vehicle with communication within the party and between any logging trucks that were travelling to or from the job.

Dispatch were advised a few days before the event so the logging trucks were all aware of the situation.


The attached letter is from a pupil at the Matawai school detailing the success the event was.
