NZ Cycle Classic is held throughout the Wairarapa

Just one hour from Wellington, New Zealand's capital city, the Wairarapa is a region of spectacular coastlines, rugged mountains, world class pinot noir, historic towns and villages... and the best road cycle racing in the country! 


Known for its quiet country roads which connect visitors to vineyards, gourmet food, walking & cycling trails and a vibrant arts scene, the Wairarapa has plenty to offer pre and post cycling enthusiasts.

Here's a map of the Wairarapa.
