New Zealand’s largest cycle race has been cancelled for 2020 because of the uncertainty around Covid-19.
The Lake Taupo Cycle Race, planned for 14 November, has been pushed back 12 months to 27 November 2021.
The organisers believe New Zealand will need to be at alert level 1 for the Lake Taupō Challenge. This is due to people coming from all over New Zealand.
The event, which has been running for 43 years, attracts more than 5000 entries with the majority competing in the 160km ride around Lake Taupō.
In 2017 the event was estimated to inject $7 million into the Taupō economy.
