A truly unique opportunity to cycle the smooth lanes of Lambton Quay (Golden Mile), in the heart of Wellington this summer. With roads closed to traffic on Sunday, 15 January 2023, 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 and two races for club riders.

 

Afterwards, line Lambton 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 the Wairarapa.

 

This is the second time in eleven years that the New Zealand Cycle Classic has been held in Wellington, 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 2023.

 

Distance
Riders bike 1.6km anti-clockwise through the heart of Wellington’s CBD - the Golden Mile.
