The Riverlock Motu 160 offers a unique cycling challenge that encompasses mountain biking and road cycling. The course is considered the most spectacular cycling event in New Zealand.

Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge

18th November 2017

 

Olympic Gold Medal Rower Hamish Bond streeted the field in the inaugural 158km Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge in December 2016. Over 600 riders enjoyed the technical and scenic course that winds its way from Richmond to near the Abel Tasman National Park and back in a loop, taking in stunning scenery like Kaiteriteri Beach. This years edition on November 18 is slightly shorter with the solo at 155km and improvements have been made to create a sprint finish and incorporate a victory lap on the new Saxton Velodrome. A great springboard into the summer season, this is an event you will want to be part of.

Cyclezone Rotorua Tour of the Valley

25th February 2018

 

Come down to Rotorua, New Zealand’s Coolest Little Hot Spot, for a classic old-school club fun ride / race.

 

Two distance options – 43km and 86km, on quiet, rolling country roads. Take it as socially or as seriously as you like - and many DO take it seriously! Don't be fooled by the supposedly easy distances! But if a cruisy 43km is more your thing then come down for a great morning and free sausage sizzle at the end.

Only $40 pre-entry and a great way to keep race fitness up between the Dynamo Series and the Rotorua-Taupo Flyer.
