Tour Aotearoa, the longest and most varied ride in New Zealand, was completed in February this year. This awe-inspiring bikepacking event took riders 3000 km from the tip of Cape Reinga all the way down to Bluff. The track included several Great Rides throughout the country, connected by the best available back-country roads.

Additionally, participants contributed to a charity of their choice, and through the hard work and sweat of these riders they raised over $230,000.
