RIDE CYCLING FESTIVAL 2022

The Ride NZ Cycling Festival is the premier Road Cycling event in NZ, with 4 days of cycling action taking in the stunning scenery of the Waikato region

 

The festival encompasses the New Zealand Gran Fondo (30/87/165km distances), The Vantage Elite National Road Championships, and an Open Time Trial. Based in the picturesque town of Cambridge, the event caters for all – from elite national riders to families and first timers. Over the 4 days, participants will have time to take in the major attractions (such as the Hobbiton Movie set), spend time on two wheels, enjoy the atmosphere of the Event Village & Expo, and explore and relax in Cambridge. 

The Ride Festival is a candidate to become an internationally significant event as part of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series, with approval in October 2021. This means that the top 20% of riders in their age groups (age and distance dependent) will qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships and can represent their country. This includes the Time Trial.
