    How can we help you in New Zealand.

    After hearing the news yesterday I was alarmed at the devestation of a 6.3 quake. Im sure Im not alone in tis concern but Im willing to shoulder some burden for this.

    I'm a member of FEMA Group 9 of Greater Los Angeles as well as a DH rider of SoCal..

    It's heartrbreaking to watch

    From what I am reading on Twitter, the best way to help is to donate cash.

    http://www.redcross.org.nz/donate

    Down the track ppl might need goods but for now the best thing is money.

    Hoping all our NZ riders and their families/friends are safe.

    mind numbing to see so much destruction and deaths so close to home and frustrating that we can't just go down there and help. would get in the way of search and rescue teams apparently.
    but some ways to help... albeit mostly locally.

    An upside?

    Hi, Christchurch resident here.

    Yes, it is an aweful situation here and the best anyone can do is as MrsH suggested by donating via the red cross or similar organisation.

    Despite the obvious devastation shown in international media many of us are safe and in good health, albeit stessed, tired and very worried. We certainly appreciate the concerns and wishes from around the country and the rest of the world.

    Might also be a good time to support businesses over there: if you could use some new cycling gear, why not order from Groundeffects
