Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge

Saturday 26th November 2016

New Zealand’s benchmark cycling event, hosted in beautiful Lake Taupo

2016 is our 40th Anniversary! Be part of our history!

Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is NZ’s largest cycling event. Around 8,000 riders from across New Zealand and over 20 countries across the globe take part each year. Will you be among them for our 40th anniversary in 2016?

The Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is best known for its 160-km Bike Barn Solo, the one-lap circumnavigation of Lake Taupo, but this is just one of 18 categories on offer, with both road cycling and mountain bike options for individuals and groups, catering to all levels of cycling and fitness abilities.

Whether you’re a keen cyclist, a mountain biker, cycle the café circuit with your mates, looking for some family fun, an excuse for a get together with the girls, or just a great weekend away, there’s something for everyone.

We’re proud to have recently won Best New Zealand Owned Major Event, awarded by the NZAEP (New Zealand Association of Event Professionals). You’ve already told us we’re a well organised event and the judges agreed saying ‘ This is a great example of a long term regional and internationally performing event, that demonstrates meticulous event management practises and has a sound vision and strategy’.

NZ’s premier bike event is on the last Saturday in November and there are plenty of prestigious prizes up for grabs, so mark 26 November 2016 in your diary, and we’ll see you here.

The 2017 event will be held on Saturday 25th November 2017.
