BikeNZ CEO Leading From the Front
The BDO Tour of Northland will see BikeNZ CEO Kieran Turner line up on the start line at its 12th annual event this March.
“I’m excited to be riding the Tour of Northland again. It’s a great event with a fantastic atmosphere and fantastic roads to ride on,” Turner said.
Turner will line up with around 480 riders to participate in the four day tour which attracts a broad range of recreational riders and approximately 40 elite riders.
“Kiwis love their bikes!” said Turner, who is returning after having a two year break from the event. “This event is a great way to see some truly remarkable scenery from the seat of your bike.”
The tour takes in coastal scenery of Northland, heading west along the Twin Coast Discovery Trail on day one and up the Kauri Bush Trail on day two. Riders then cut from the west to the east through the rural Northland country side, before returning to Whangarei on day four down the Coast to Coast flyer.
Riders will have cycled 340km in total over the four days.
“Daily distances are achievable,” says Stephen Cox, Director of Dynamo Events and former New Zealand Olympic and Commonwealth Games cycling representative.
It is this achievable distance that Cox credits to the success of the event, with it reaching near capacity each year.
“With accommodation options along the tour we are limited, but we are exploring other options for the next event which would see numbers lift,” he said.
Riders will have the chance to collect their registration packs prior to the event in North Shore City, but entries do close prior to this and Cox recommends people enter soon.
