Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Fri 16/Sep/11 8:45am

The Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is New Zealand’s largest cycling event and the world’s largest cycling relay. One of the reasons the iconic Cycle Challenge is so popular is the wide range of events available to participants of varying abilities and fitness levels including the Solo 160km around Lake Taupo, road and mountain bike relays, mountain bike challenges, separate Men’s and Women’s races, corporate challenges, Enduro events (2, 4 and 8 laps of the lake) and the @Heart ride for kids.

The Cycle Challenge regularly attracts in excess of 10,000 riders and, in 2006, was admitted to the prestigious UCI Golden Bike Series, gaining recognition as being one of the world’s top six rides. It also makes up one of the events in BikeNZ’s brand new Summer Series.

It takes a special person to ride 160km - I dare say all the participants will be capable of casting a special vote.

Good ploy by the gubbermint though, could pretty easily rule out 10,000 odd greenie left wing votes.

they got cups at each of the endless drinks stations. Just stop at each one and you wont need any bottles. Take the bottle holders off and you'll be more aerodynamical like too, maybe.

The director of New Zealand's biggest cycling event – the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge – has been stood down and a forensic audit ordered after he tried to claim a prize trip to Australia for himself.

The chairman of the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge Trust, Rob Simmons, confirmed that director Rob McKnight had been reprimanded for "wrongfully somehow assuming" he could use the trip...
