2017 Chain Reaction Ride

In March over 30 senior business executives from NSW cycled more than 1,000 kilometres throughout New Zealand’s breathtaking North Island.

The magnificent course highlighted a range of New Zealand’s best features, taking cyclists through some of the country’s most spectacular mountain ranges, over its rolling hills and around its vast lakes.

Day three was particularly challenging, with cyclists covering more than 160 kilometres of the course and riding for over six hours in order to meet the seven day deadline.

A variety of weather conditions were faced along the way and cyclists climbed over 10,000 metres of elevation in total.

The ride came to a close at the remarkable Lake Taupo, where cyclists circled the lake to finish. They were greeted by the entire support crew, were treated to a dip in a hot thermal pool and spent their last night celebrating their victory on the water’s edge.
