The 2011 On Your Bike Expo in Hamilton will be the region’s leading sales, marketing and networking event for the cycling industry. As New Zealand’s dedicated bike event, we will specialise in providing a complete experience for all visitors interested in the world of cycling and multisport. The expo will open up the world of cycling to the thousands of potential owners, up graders, first time buyers and enthusiasts.

Along with the expo is a 100km and 30km road bike race.

100km route:
This ride will present a good challenge and includes 530m of climbing.

The ride departs The Claudelands Event Centre on Heaphy Tce and heads out of Hamilton via River Road to Ngaruawahia. Extra care will be required here as cyclists go onto SH1 before turning off it again a few hundred metres later. The route heads out on the Waingaro Road to the first climb (2.8km) at Glen Massey after 32km. Cyclists will continue on a fast trip thru the Waingaro Valley until at 45km when the ride heads south towards Te Uku and the next of the climbs at 53km. At 62km the ride will turn left onto SH 23 the Raglan - Hamilton Road and start the journey back to the city with the biggest climb (2.82km at about 4%) the Deviation to climb. After this it is a flat and fast ride all the way back to Hamilton.

At 83km the riders turn left at Whatawhata towards Te Kowhai before heading back to Hamilton via Te Kaowhai Road. The last 10km will require some extra care as the cyclists will be required to cross over SH1 and then weave their way through the street of Hamilton and along River Road, before the finish back outside the Claudelands Event centre.

30km route:
This ride is suitable for all levels as it is a nice flat ride. This ride will also start outside the Claudelands Event Centre and head out along River Road until cyclists take a right into Osborne Road before continuing on past the Horsham Downs School and continue onto Lake Road until the turn left onto River Road and start the trip back over the same Roads to the finish at Claudelands Event Centre.
