NEW Hamilton to Auckland Road Cycling event

Event Promotions, who run the very successful 100 K Flyer (Rotorua to Taupo), are going to stage a road cycling event from Hamilton to Auckland on 11th September 2005.

Cycling News FLASH:
New and exciting Hamilton to Auckland Road Cycle event to cater for all!

It’s going to be a real beauty! This exhilarating ride starts at the renowned Te Rapa Race course, Hamilton, on Sir Tristram Avenue at 10am.  The majority of the 95 km distance is on peaceful country roads and travels on the west side of the Waikato River and finishes at the A&P grounds in Pukekohe.
For the comfort of riders, all support vehicles will travel up State Highway One.  Entry forms will be available from the middle of June. More information to come – watch this space!

If you still want to enter the Rotorua to Taupo 100 K Flyer – 2nd April 2005 – registration details are available on the website with late entry possible up to race day. They are expecting 3500 – 4000 riders this year. I did the ride in 2003 and its a great event. Mostly gentle rolling country and avoiding the main highway for the majority of the route. I missed last year as was on holiday in the South Island but hope to be there this year.
