Cycle chic: Former Miss Universe
New Zealand, Ria van Dyke
Former Miss Universe New Zealand Ria van
Dyke is riding into town to co-host the free
fashion show Heels on Wheels at the Hawke's
Bay Opera House on Sunday, May 22.
She will provide the glam at the cycling-
themed fashion show, presented by Hastings
District Council's iWay programme, which
aims to get more people cycling and walking
around the district.
During the gala afternoon
event, models will show how
to ride a bike in style across
five fashion sections:
seasonal, everyday cycling,
frocks on bikes, EIT
fashions, and men's corpor-
Fashion retailers Sally
Anne Clothing, from Havelock North, and
Thomsons Suits in Hastings are providing
outfits for the show, while Avanti Plus in
Hastings and Revolution Bikes in Havelock
North will be providing the bikes.
The idea is to demonstrate that you don't
have to dress down or [don] lycra when on a
bike,'' says Owen Mata, the council's iWay
You can be fashionable while riding, and
this will be demonstrated in style at Heels on
Wheels,'' he says.
Free event, 3pm till 5pm, Opera House on
Sunday, May 22, with a complimentary glass of
bubbles for the first 200 people through the
door. A stylish ladies bike will also be given
away as a spot prize.

Sebastien Hurtaud features in Haydn's Cello
Concerto No 2.
The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra will
perform one of the most radical symphonies
ever written when it brings Beethoven's
mighty Eroica to the Napier Municipal
Theatre on Tuesday, May 24.
The Eroica is an orchestral giant that
shocked the concert hall on debut two
centuries ago, changing forever the way
symphonies were composed.
The masterwork marks a triumphant
turning point in Beethoven's career
at a time when his encroaching deaf-
ness had threatened to overwhelm
Six-time Grammy-nominated Pol-
ish conductor Antoni Wit will lead
His international career spans
more than four decades and he has
recorded more than 90 albums.
Wit has conducted many of the
world's leading orchestras, including
the Berlin and London Philharmonic
orchestras and the Dresden Staats-
He is now general and artistic
director of the Warsaw Philharmonic
He is a specialist in Polish classi-
cal music and will open the concert
with a work by 20th-century composer
Krysztof Penderecki, his former teacher.
The Eroica tour also includes exceptional
young French cellist Sebastien Hurtaud,
who joins the orchestra to play Haydn's
Cello Concerto No 2.
Hurtaud returns to New Zealand after
winning the prestigious Adam Inter-
national Cello Competition in 2009.
Roger Smith, of Radio New Zealand Con-
cert, will present a pre-concert talk 45
minutes before the performance. Admission
is free and seating unallocated.
