Every year around this time, thousands of people pull on their lycra, grease their chains and head to the stunning Taupo region, for one of New Zealand’s biggest sport participation events. For 40 years the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge has been thrilling cyclists from around the country and overseas. And for more than 15 years it has also been providing support to the 12 babies born every week with heart conditions. The Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is one of Heart Kids major sponsors.
You don’t have aspirations to ride in the Tour de France to compete in this cycle challenge, and you don’t even have to wear lycra! The Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge November 25th has a course to suit everyone of any ability. There are 14 events on offer and both road and mountain bike options. If you can ride a bike, you can be part of the fun! If you sign up at www.cycleforheartkids.co.nz you will get a 20% discount on your registration. And the first 200 kids registered get a free T-Shirt.
The day is guaranteed to be so much fun for everyone, and there’ll also be spot prizes for anyone who raises over $250. The Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge is an event not to be missed. So why not take on the challenge and be a Heart Kids hero!
