The ultimate New Zealand cycling experience, the Tour of New Zealand cycle ride, 14-21 april 2012.
The ultimate kiwi cycling experience, the Tour of New Zealand is a 7-day, epic road ride taking in km after km of iconic NZ scenery (keeping to the quieter roads where possible).
You choose to cycle either the North or the South Island, Cape Reinga to Wellington, or Bluff to Picton. Then on day 8, riders from both islands will converge for a final showdown round the Beehive.
We're looking to get as many bikes on the Tour as possible, so there are lots of options for how to tackle the ride. You
can enter by yourself or as a team with anywhere from 3 to 70 people!
Teams must have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 cyclists on the road at all times, but whether those are the same people for the full Tour, or you ride it as a relay, is up to you.
Put your pedaling to work to support community cycling projects and smarter mobility.
The Tour of NZ isn't just another cycle race; organiser Peter Yarrell wanted to put together an event that showcases
New Zealand's incredible cycle touring potential, AND puts all its pedal power to good use. When you sign up,
you'll have the chance to say, yes, I want to ride for the Hikurangi Foundation.
Then you'll get your own website so that you can raise funds for Hikurangi's work supporting cycling and smarter
mobility. Check out the backside of this flyer for more info or head to: www.hikurangi.org.nz/action/tourofnz.
