Entries for New Zealand’s largest cycle race, the Lake Taupo Challenge, open on 1 June. This event takes place on Saturday 25 November and offers 14 different event categories, ranging from the 160km Bike Barn Round The Lake, the 80km Half the Lake, as well as 35km, 60km and 85km mountain bike options.
June is also the month to register for the 2018 Motatapu Off-Road Sporting Event, which takes place in the Wanaka and Queenstown high country on 10 March 2018. There are five different events to choose from including a 47km mountain bike race. An extra incentive for taking part is that much of the course is only accessible to the public during the event, making it a unique opportunity to experience some of the South Island’s most remote and rugged riding terrain.
If you’re coming from overseas for a cycle or adventure event, we have high-performance mountain and road bikes available to hire. Take a look at your options on the website, or let us know what you’re looking for by email.
Have a great week,
