Bike Week NZ is a relatively new event on the calendar catering to motorcyclists with a sense of adventure and a thirst for fresh horizons.
The dates above for our 3rd year are now confirmed so make your holiday plans to include Bike Week NZ number 3!
Bannockburn is an historic old gold town in Central Otago, known better now for the brilliant Pinot’s produced by its many local winemakers. Called ‘The Heart of the Desert’ the small community nestles in hills overlooking the magnificent Kawarau River where it flows into the upper reaches of the Clyde Dam. Surrounded by often snow clad peaks Bannockburn is ideally situated to offer some of the very best road and off road riding in the world.
Bike Week will give you the opportunity to get into places on your adventure bike that you will never forget or to take part in road rides through spectacular Southern landscapes on the emptiest highways in the country.
The third annual Bike Week is scheduled to run between Saturday February 1st and Friday February 7th 2014. It is followed by the Vincent County Rally (7-9 Feb) at Alexandra hosted by BRONZ Otago. This allows those fortunate enough to take the time to attend two top South Island rally events in just ten days.
