Welcome to Cycling Rotorua Inc.

Cycling Rotorua was formed at the beginning of 2005 and is an amalgamation of Velo Sport Rotorua and the Rotorua Cycling Club. The club has a present membership of around the 100 mark and this is increasing steadily every month. The membership range is across the board from Novice through to Pro Elite riders.

Our  Mission:

  • To promote and nurture all aspects of the sport of road cycling including road, track and recreational cycling.
  • To encourage young athletes and new members to participate in and promote the sport of cycling and to also encourage officials to develop their skills and grading within the sport.
  • To do all such acts as to further the objectives of the club.
  • To have FUN!

Winter Evening Rides 

Get some decent lights and thermals and keep your fitness up over winter. We enjoy some stunningly beautiful sunsets and quiet moonlit country roads, these are a real highlight of the year and something that those in larger centres can’t easily enjoy.

They will be cancelled in poor weather so join the club to get onto Kevin Prosser’s text-alert service (details below).
