APL opening night Criterium


Our opening night is designed to kick off the Ride Cycling Festival in style! It will take place on Thursday the 11th of February, from around 5pm onwards at the impressive APL manufacturing factory in Hautapu. We are still in the process of confirming the details regarding  the criterium so make sure to stay tuned for more information in the weeks to come. Spot prizes and prize money will also be up for grabs in every race!


The race schedule begins from 5pm with the under 15 criterium.

Followed by D grade, C grade, B grade and A grade races respectively (both women and men welcome to enter any grade)

The schedule concludes with the Business House race which involves a team of 4 members working for the same business (must include 1 woman) in a relay format. On a simple out and back course, each member will complete 1 ‘lap’ and then tag their next team member. Bragging rights are up for grabs as the fastest business in the North Island as well as a trophy to consolidate your business’ effort out on the course!


Food and beverage providers will be present out at the venue for you and your family/friends to purchase to refuel after your race.
