In April 2012 I was invited to take part in the inaugural Tour of New Zealand. The event included two tours, one group started at the top of the North Island and made its way south over seven days, a second group started simultaneously at the bottom of the South Island and travelled 700km north with both groups meeting in the middle in Wellington for a criterium race.
As part of the Bicycles Network Australia (BNA) coverage, you can follow some of the action I capture from my bike mounted camera in the short video as the cycling tour travelled through some of most beautiful parts of New Zealand. This event catered to road racers as well as long distance touring riders including corporate and family teams who were in for the challenge and the experience.
If the video makes you curious, you can read more about the tour and see some beautiful photos:
