The K2 Road Cycle Classic is one of the toughest one day cycle challenges in the Southern Hemisphere.
2022 Event Postponed
Unfortunately, the high level of uncertainty around public gatherings has severely impacted on K1/2 entries, which are currently down by some 70%. The potential for an outbreak of Omicron in the country and a move to the ‘red light’ status would make the race impossible, and so we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s K2. While we would do everything we could to provide a safe opportunity to experience one of New Zealand’s greatest bike rides, we cannot as a charity sustain the additional losses a last minute cancellation would incur.
