The Pioneer Is Heading to Rotorua For 2020

06.12.2019See All Event Posts Follow Event

The cats out of the bag....we’re heading to Rotorua in 2020!

We are working on a course that sweeps down from Rotorua to the west, hitting iconic cycleways and mountain bike trails on the way – all linked up by a network of forestry and gravel roads. The course will hit its most southern point at Lake Taupō before heading back up towards the Rotorua finish.

Riders will experience the spectacular and diverse landscapes of the region, from dense mossy virgin forest, geothermal wonders, lakes, rivers, and lush farmland. Without giving too much away yet, this is going to be special.
