Win a place on the official race podium of the fifth & final Stage the New Zealand Cycle Classic!

A truly unique opportunity to cycle along the smooth lanes of Lambton Quay, in the heart of Wellington city this summer. With roads closed off to traffic on Sunday, 17 January 2021, Cycle the Golden Mile is an opportunity for cyclists of all ages and abilities, and on all styles of bikes, to ride along Lambton Quay.

There is a fun Kid’s Criterium, a Celebrity Criterium featuring a who’s who of Wellington’s leading figures and two races for club riders. 

Afterwards, line the Quay and soak up the festive atmosphere as New Zealand’s elite road cyclists race the fifth and final stage of the UCI 2.2 New Zealand Cycle Classic. This will be a thrilling Criterium held on the same city streets followed by the presentation of the coveted Yellow Jersey to the Tour winner and overall classification jerseys from the previous four days of racing in Wairarapa. 

This is the first time the New Zealand Cycle Classic has been held in Wellington for 10 years, so come along and enjoy a wheely fun day out along the City’s Golden Mile. It is also the only Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) sanctioned multi-day race to be held in Oceania in January 2021.
