Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge 2014

Do one…Do this!
NZ’s premier & largest bike event, hosted in Lake Taupo NZ.

The Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is the largest NZ cycling event. Up to 10,000 riders from New Zealand and over 20 countries across the globe take part each year. Will you be among them in 2014?

The Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge  event is best known for its 160-km Bike Barn Solo, the one-lap circumnavigation of Lake Taupo, Australasia’s largest lake! This is just one of 15 categories on offer, with both road cycling and mountain bike options for individuals and teams, catering to all levels of cycling and fitness abilities.

As a UCI Golden Bike Event, the Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is one of the 6 best recreational rides in the world! Its mountain bike categories take place on trails which were recently awarded Silver Ride Centre status by the International Mountain Bike Association (one of only two in the Southern Hemisphere).

NZ’s premier bike event is always held on the last Saturday in November and there are plenty of prestigious prizes up for grabs. So mark 29 November 2014 in your diary, get in the saddle and start training!
