After much reflection and discussion, we have decided not to run C2K Cycle Challenge anymore.
We thank you for your support over the years.
Cape to Kaitaia Cycle Challenge used to be held every year on the 3rd Saturday of June (2009 - 2021). The ride was hosted by the Far North Flash Cycling Club and supported by local, and not so local, businesses.
It is a unique ride in that it is New Zealand's northernmost Cycle Challenge. It starts at the beautiful Cape Reinga and meanders its way south down S.H.1 to Kaitaia. It is about 111kms in distance and has a mixture of terrain to challenge both the novice and the hardened cyclist. There are no signposts to say which way to go... it's just one straight drag south.
Along the way you pass by Waitiki Landing (the last store), Te Kao (which boast the largest ice creams in the far north), through Houhora (fishing resort), Awanui (home of the Kauri) and finishing in the lazy metropolis of Kaitaia.
