Clevedon selected for new Tour de Ranges cycling event

First Tier Sports Productions, proud organisers of the Panasonic People's Triathlon Series and the Botany Town Centre Summer Fun Run and Walk, are pleased to announce a new and exciting event to the greater Clevedon area. The SRAM Tour de Ranges is a celebration of the sport of cycling and will take place on Saturday, 23rd January 2010. This event was created to attract all levels of cycling ability to some of the most remarkable roads in Auckland.
Starting and finishing at the Clevedon A & P showgrounds, the SRAM Tour de Ranges encompasses two separate events. The 110km ride will wind its way through the tree-lined country roads and rolling hills of the Hunua Ranges before entering Kaiaua and navigating its way along the Seabird Coast. From here the ride will take cyclists inland, passing Tapapakanga Regional Park and the Orere Point turnoff en route to Kawakawa Bay. The final section will take cyclists past Clevedon Coast Oysters before making a left at the McNicol Homestead and continuing on to the finish. The 30km event takes cyclists directly out to Ness Valley, passing the well known Ness Valley vineyards, before making a turnaround and returning along the same route.
Traffic Management New Zealand will be monitoring vehicles and cyclists to minimize disruption to Clevedon and surrounding communities.
