Be part of the 2018 BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge


The BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge will this year celebrate its 42nd event on Saturday 24 November.

From its humble beginnings in 1977 with just 26 participants, the event has grown into NZ’s premier and largest cycling occasion, with around 6,000 riders taking part each year!

The famous 160km 'Bike Barn Round the Lake' - a one lap circumnavigation of Lake Taupo - is just one of 14 event categories on offer.

There are both Road and Mountain Bike options for individuals, teams and families catering to any level of cycling or fitness ability.
