When Tour of New Zealand 2012 rolled out of Cape Reinga and Bluff the 400 (plus) riders knew they had 7 days / 7 stages / 700 km ahead of them. What they didn't know was that the magnificent journey ahead would be so much more than just riding a bike.
"Scenery spectacular. Being part of the Tour 'family' unforgettable" - 2012 Tour rider
You are invited to join us on the 2013 Tour - or wait until 2015 - as more Tours are now in the planning. Our plan is to run (largely) the same routes, allowing riders who competed in 2012 the opportunity to swap islands and enjoy another stunning experience - or stay in the same Island and challenge themselves further!
The Tour will be run bi-annually after 2013. In 2015 new routes will be introduced.
Entries for 2013 are now closed but you can join a stage on the day for $40.
Tour of NZ 2013 competitors have until the 20th of May to collect any final racebook donations before the racebook will close down as part of preperations for 2015 entries.
