From its humble beginnings in 1977 with just 26 participants, the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge has grown into NZ’s premier and largest cycling event, with around 8,000 riders from across New Zealand and over 20 countries across the globe taking part each year!

Held on the last Saturday of every November around the pristine and picturesque Lake Taupo, the event will this year celebrate its 40th anniversary on Saturday 26 November 2016.

With a vision of creating inspiring event experiences for everyone, our purpose is to provide cyclists, as well as anyone interested in physical activity, the flexibility to choose a ride distance which best suits their cycling ability and aspiration, providing options to ride either as a team, a group, a family or as an individual.

Accompanying our already popular road and mountain-bike categories, is the introduction of the all new 40km Quarter Lake on road event option (taking in the final 40km of the course), complementing the iconic 160km Round The Lake and the addition of the 80km Half The Lake category in 2014.

Part of the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge, the Huka Mountain Bike has four event categories, the 85km Huka Challenge, 60km Huka Steamer, 35km Huka Teaser and the Huka XL race for licensed riders.

With incentives for groups and families as well, we want everyone to join the ride and celebrate our 40th anniversary with us.
