Taranaki New Plymouth. “Round the Mountain” cycle 150km.

Saturday January 24th, perfect timing for Auckland Anniversary weekend.

$80 per entry. ( You get a meal and drink ticket with the entry).

This is a very fast ride, undulating hills, nothing as challenging as Taupo or K2, so ideal for all levels!!


  • Arrive Friday 23rd arrange your own dinner. I shall arrange accommodation, there is a really good back packers very handy to the event location, we have stayed there past three years.
  • Race day, group booking for dinner after prize giving, then off to see the festival of lights (free activity, live bands etc), also walking distance from our accommodation.
  • Sunday 25th options include, ride up to Mt Egmont Nat Park (bit winding and hilly) and or shopping, a visit to White Cliffs organic Brewery, and lunch there an option. Waterfront walk is a must do as well. For those more adventurous there are some great treks to do, various levels up the western flank of Mt Taranaki.

Heaps to do, other suggestions welcome. I do need to get an indication of numbers please. The plan will be to return to Auckland Monday 26th, in time to return to work on the Tuesday.Yay!!.

If you are interested please get in touch with Geoff directly.
