Cyclorama, NZ’s first e-bike festival
This November (13th and 14th) will see Arrowtown welcome the first annual Cyclorama e-bike festival. Riders from across New Zealand will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for bespoke adventures and fun trails curated to complement the natural surroundings and regional heritage.
Organiser of the event, Dave Gibson says “While international travel is still restricted Cyclorama is the perfect chance for the growing number of Kiwi e -bike riders to take part in an event that is specially designed for them. We are excited about offering a weekend with a great mix of fun activities, unique experiences and the chance to experience the incredible rivers, lakes and mountains Arrowtown and its surrounds are famous for.”
The inaugural festival will boast nine different trails and rides themed around birdwatching, art, beer and wine tasting plus a special ‘Tour de Gourmet’. And more adventurous riders can stretch themselves with a mountain ride dubbed ‘Cyclopath’.
Complementing the rides will be a weekend of trade stalls and entertainment based on Arrowtown’s Butlers Green, where bike retailers will showcase bikes and accessories. The weekend will also offer a special orienteering event for families taking place on Sunday afternoon themed around Arrowtown’s goldmining history.
