CAPE TO KAITAIA CYCLE CHALLENGE
20th June 2020
The Cape to Kaitaia Cycle Challenge is held every year on the 3rd Saturday of June. The ride is hosted by the Far North Flash Cycling Club and supported by local, and not so local, businesses.
It is a unique ride in that it is New Zealands northern most Cycle Challenge. It starts at the beautiful Cape Reinga and meanders its way south down S.H.1 to Kaitaia. It is 115kms in distance and has a mixture of terrain to challenge both the novice and the hardened cyclist. There are no sign posts to say which way to go...its just one straight drag south.
Along the way you pass by Waitiki Landing (the last store), Te Kao (which boast the largest ice creams in the far north), through Houhora (fishing resort), Awanui (home of the Kauri) and finishing in the lazy metropolis of Kaitaia.
The hospitality is second to none here in the far north and we welcome you to join us on this annual pilgrimage....
