Welcome to the 2019 NZ Cycle Festival!

The New Zealand Cycle Festival is the premier weekend program celebrating all aspects of cycling competition and culture, held during Taranaki Anniversary weekend (8-11 March, 2019).

We have over a week of planned activities and events celebrating all aspects of cycling in our community.  In addition to the Surf Highway 100 km ride, we have partnered with the Opunake Lions, who are hosting their annual Mountain-Surf downhill MTB ride, and with Sport Taranaki and the New Plymouth Mountain Bike Club, who are running a fun ride for all kids aged 2 to 12.

Frocks on Bikes have a mystery ride, there is the Bike Art Exhibition, and the NZ Cycle Show – a shared exhibition space for anyone who has vintage, eclectic or rare bikes, and for cycling businesses to share what is new.

So, please check out the different events, mark your calendar, and start riding!

Many thanks again
