Awesome tour & scenery.

Run over a loop at the top of the South Island at exactly the right time of the year to help your fitness for the summer events - Round Taupo; Half Ironmans; NZIM; etc. An amazing catalyst to get you out training in the late winter months! 

The Labour Weekend tour includes 3 consecutive days of riding between 120-140 kms with options for extending ride distances to other iconic locations such as the Takaka Hill & Kaiteriteri Beach!

A support van will assist riders and in the case that people want to do 'part-days'.   

We travel from Wellington via the InterIslander on Friday evening & ride from Picton on Saturday morning. 

Accommodation, support, breakfasts and lunches are included.  Bikers can make their evening meals at their accommodation or eat locally - evening meals are not included in the tour organisation or cost.

Accommodation Standards - For logistical reasons accommodation will be organised to cater for group travelling. We use both private houses and Holiday Parks. Expect that you will have to share a room with another rider on at least 1 of the 3 nights. Couples will be housed in double rooms. 

Flexible Payment Facility - Either pay the full amount on registration or the minimum of $300.  Final payment is due on the 1st October.
