Information
Born in the Bay of Plenty
This is the 2nd edition of the Kiwi Crusade, an international multi day mountain bike stage race that takes place in New Zealand’s North Island. We have ensured that the Kiwi Crusade, born in the Bay Of Plenty, is a uniquely Kiwi event. As far as possible we have sourced nearly every service needed to organise an event of this magnitude, from within our community. We believe in supporting local and in turn this support will improve the economy of the BOP and the surrounding areas, as well as the areas we travel through on the race route.We use local volunteers and venues to ensure the race has a uniquely Kiwi “flavour”, while also using the local facilities and communities along the route. Each year’s route will change, thereby giving different areas a taste of the race but also allowing different communities to benefit from the event passing through.

We have incorporated a few options to give everyone a taste of our amazing race.

Option 1 is the 2 man team entry.

Option 2 is a limited number of solo entries.

Option 3 is the 3 day ride, log onto “enter” and fill in the form to ride the last 3 days of the Kiwi Crusade.

Option 4 is a “day tripper” option for those wanting a “taste” of riding a stage of the Kiwi Crusade, without committing to the full 7 /3 days. Riders can choose a stage between stages 2-5 to ride and get to experience that stage, have full use of the water points and services.

Please email us for more info and booking’s as space is limited.

Plenty of sun, fun and warmth.
