FREE POSTERS: here are two A3 sized posters of the 2018 route [6MB PDF] you can download and print for yourself or friends and family.


This is a, self-supported, 3,000 km brevet from Cape Reinga to Bluff. A brevet is not a race. It is a ride following a set course, via 30 photo checkpoints, which you must complete between 10 and 30 days – no more and no less.

If you are participating in the Brevet, you must make a $100 donation to a charity of your choice. And of course you can add personal value to your journey and fund raise more money for the charity you are supporting. Besides this donation, all entrants are asked to offset their carbon emissions from travelling to the start and from the end of the Brevet.

Over 300 people entered the 2016 Brevet, including 65 from overseas. In total, over $250,000 was raised for 83 different causes ranging from social and environment to trail building. The next Tour Aotearoa Brevet starts in February 2018.
