The Tour Aotearoa is designed by Jonathan Kennett, a New Zealand cycling historian and guidebook writer. He launched Tour Aotearoa in February 2016 by organising a 3000 kilometre Brevet from Cape Reinga to Bluff along a route designed to highlight New Zealand (and avoid heavy traffic). It includes many Great Rides and quiet back country roads.
