All the glamour and colour of international cycle racing sweeps past many doorsteps and farm gates of the Wairarapa. 

From January 20-24 the New Zealand Cycle Classic will thrill spectators for its 29th year.

The New Zealand Cycle Classic has been an annual sporting fixture for the past twenty eight years and recognised as the premier international road cycling event in New Zealand. 

Each year the Cycle Classic unearths new talent, and a number of those riders have gone on to win stages in the Tour de France, the Tour of Italy and world championships among others.

The Wairarapa region has to be one of the best areas for cycling in this country. It’s really “the best place to ride a bike” in New Zealand and we are very privileged to stage this international event in the wonderful region of Wairarapa once again.
