Whether it’s to get you to work or school, for recreation or to experience New Zealand’s scenery, cycling is a fun, affordable and healthy way to travel. Working with our partners, we’re committed to helping you get around by bike by investing in building connected cycling networks, as part of a wider transport system, so that getting about by bike can be an easy, safer, everyday choice for more Kiwis.
This October we're bringing back a special 'lean' edition of the challenge. No teams, just you - and your goals, badges, bragging rights, and prizes. It's the perfect chance to see if you can best your mark from February, set yourself a new challenge, or learn a new riding skill. Any ride you go on during October counts!

New Zealand has some of the best places to bike in the world. From breath taking off road trails to purpose built urban routes, we are becoming spoilt for choice.
From April to May 2017, New Zealander's had the opportunity to nominate their favourite rides across the country. The inaugural Top Town award and category winners were announced on 7 June in an official statement. (external link)
