Welcome to Ride the Rakaia

This amazing event is different than any other bike race because you can't do what you can in this event any other day of the week.

On Saturday the 25th February 2017 you will ride across the Rakaia River Bridge with up to 1,000 other cyclists all at once, the peloton will be approximately 1 kilometre long and will be in a controlled start until you have crossed the Rakaia River Bridge and the Rakaia Overhead Bridge on State Highway one.
