New Zealand Cycling Forum

New Zealand is the only country most of us can currently visit.  It has many great cycling attractions, and Bike North has several members with extensive NZ cycling experience.

Are you thinking of riding there, perhaps on an organised tour?  Have you considered doing your own ride there, self-supported?  Do you want to incorporate some short cycling highlights in an NZ driving tour?

Hear the NZ experiences of some Bike North members. This is your chance to hear the ins and outs, the tips and tricks, practical advice from experienced members.  They will show you some really exciting areas to consider riding, what to look out for and how best to plan.  You can put your questions and raise any concerns; there will be a Q&A.  The emphasis will be on specific advice, going beyond what is easily available online.

The evening will be chaired by Phill Hart, President.  We are looking for a couple of ‘ushers’ to welcome people as they arrive; if you would be willing to do that, please email Richard Kelly ( to let him know.

Unfortunately, the Covid lockdown has caused us to postpone this Forum to a date yet to be determined. Please stay tuned to News for an announcement of the new date.

Dougherty Centre, Victor St, Chatswood
