Welcome to Bike Northland


Bike Northland is the regional body for cycling in Northland and is working to make Northland a great place to ride your bike.  


Established in 2007, Bike Northland brought together existing mountain biking, BMX, and road cycling clubs. Its aim was to promote cycling throughout Northland with just one organisation. Bike Northland was created after a club approached Sport Northland for advice on how to develop what it was doing. Sport Northland’s solution was to bring the region’s cycle clubs together to work co-operatively on mutual problems.

It has now grown into an organisation with a much broader focus than just cycle sport. Currently its work is based on making the environment in Northland for all cyclists safer and making cycling an attractive transport choice. It is currently working to implement a "Bikes in Schools" programme in Northland, that was developed by Paul Mcardle in Hastings. This is aimed at giving primary school age children the ability to ride a bike in their school on a regular basis and realise the benefits from this.
   
Our aim is to address the challenges that all aspects of cycling face and to provide a common voice to promote and drive cycling across the Northland region.

Okoroire mid winter fun ride

OKOROIRE Hot Springs Hotel  

http://www.funcycling.net/okoroire-mid-winter-fun-ride/

The 16th running of this popular ride, a ride that is suitable for most cyclists, almost regardless of fitness.

Remember it starts and finishes at the OKOROIRE HOTEL so it can be a VERY social event, why not travel there on Saturday and stay the night? Camping and Motor home parking is available, just contact the Hotel.

40km

For those new to cycling or those who are just not quite in the condition they would like to be.

Mainly flat, with one reasonably gentle climb into Tirau, then an undulating road back to the Okoroire Hotel.

So get a group together and “give it a go”. Yes, it is winter, but wrap up warm and accept the challenge.

70km

Ok, you have ridden the 40km before, so why not get in a little training and give the 70km a go.

Alternatively you normally ride the 70km and want to better your time. Although THIS IS NOT A RACE we do have electronic timing, so you can have bragging rights, or not, over your buddies.

The early part of the rides shares the same roads as the 40km, then a nice stretch of flat alongside of the river, before a short climb up to Arapuni.

From here the ride undulates along country roads through to Putaruru, then Tirau, via back roads, before joining the 40km route back to the Okoroire Hotel.

2012 saw Gordon McCauley and Aaron Strong set a time of 1 hour 45 minutes, only to be bettered in 2013 by Brad Tilby and Jim McMurray with a time of 1 hour 38 minutes.

JUST BE SURE TO BE BACK BY 1:30PM FOR PRIZE GIVING (All spot prizes).
