The 2019 program will be sent once it has been prepared to those who have registered. Keep an eye on our facebook page to see what is coming up. Open to the public is the Highlands Track ride at 5:00pm on Tuesday 29th January 2019. Also new for 2019 will be a motorcycle themed quiz night, likely on the Sunday night of the 27th. Get your own team of four or let us put you in a team. Depending on registrations, this may be open to the public.
You can download the Bike Week Programme 2018 here for a taste of what usually happens.
ARTHUR’S CINEMA: Two popular movie nights were held during Bike Week for the first time in 2018. Movies shown were On Any Sunday and The Motorcycle Diaries. Another movie night will occur in 2019 – probably some light-hearted fun with “Wild Hogs”.
HIGHLANDS RIDE: A visit Highlands Motorsport Park NZ will be one of the highlights at this world class facility. We are very fortunate that for $35 per single, $50 with pillion you get to 1) ride TWO complete laps of the track under CONTROLLED conditions, 2) visit the Motorsport Museum and 3) have a beer. This will occur from 5:00pm to 6:30pm on the evening of Tuesday 29th January. If you want to go Go-Karting, we suggest you book a time before 5:00 by visiting and using their online booking facility. Riding a motorcycle around Highlands is exclusive to Bike Week and not normally permitted.
