On Saturday 28 November 2015 the 39th annual Contact Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge will be taking place and we hope you and your club members will join us.

Riding New Zealand’s benchmark cycling event begins with a single turn of a pedal and every year thousands come to give one of the 18 event categories a go, crack a personal best and spend a day riding around Australasia’s largest lake. Join with people from 20 countries around the Globe and make 2015 your Cycle Challenge year!

Whether you’re weekend riders, an elite or enduro, a mountain bike enthusiast, cycle the café circuit with your mates, looking for some family fun, or a weekend away with the girls, this event has a ride for everyone – long distance, short distance, on road or off – it’s a challenge and it’s achievable and there’s a category to suit everyone’s cycling style best.

Riders and supporters alike will be well looked after with entertainment options for all ages both on and off your bike.

There are even some great prizes up for grabs including:

  • Prizes for the club / group with the most participants and the first 4 person relay team, which includes a trophy, certificates, and a case of Forrest Wine.
  • Participants could also be in the draw for one of this year’s amazing array of spot prizes, including a new Holden car, travel prizes and heaps of other great goodies.
  • Workplace Challenge
  • And get your creative thinking caps on, because if you’re entering a team you could also be in the draw for the Forrest Wines Best Relay Team Name or the Ultimo Clothing Dress Up prize.
