What is the Tour Aotearoa you ask? Well, in February 2016 three hundred riders will be undertaking 3000kms from Cape Reinga to Bluff. This is a brevet style bicycle event which will incorporate many of the recently built New Zealand Cycle trails. Some of the basic rules around this type of event are:
  1. Do it all yourself, under your own steam.
  2. Riders must carry all their own gear, sleeping gear, clothes food etc.
  3. No outside support (deliveries only to public addresses, no support from friends along the way,   no support vehicles of any kind meeting you along the way).
  4. Follow 100% of the mapped GPS course.
  5. Between 9am one day and 9am the next, every rider must spend at least one block of at least six.   hours not travelling. That is, the maximum time any rider may spend travelling along the course will be 18 hours.
The Tour Aotearoa is an organised event and is not a race but for some it will be a race, for others it will be a race against themselves and for all it will be an amazing challenge.
