Rotorua is famous for Maori culture and scenery that ranges from geothermal features to sparkling lakes, but on Saturday 2 April 2011 all eyes will be on the 3,500 cyclists tackling the Avanti 100K Flyer biking event from Rotorua to Taupo in New Zealand’s Central North Island.
The race takes riders through stunning countryside (okay, Rotorua’s scenery does come to the fore after all!) on country roads, private forestry roads and parts of the world-famous Ironman course, giving participants a chance to see some beautiful New Zealand scenery that’s off the beaten track. The Avanti 100K Flyer finishes inside the Taupo Events Centre and with over NZ$100,000 worth of spot prizes at stake it’s definitely worth coming in first! The race is open to everyone with a bike, with options ranging from solo and relay to tandem riders.
And whether you join the Avanti 100K Flyer as an individual, with your partner or even as a group with your friends, Ambassador Thermal Motel invites all of you to stay the night! Conveniently located in central Rotorua, we’re the perfect choice for your Avanti 100K Flyer weekend. Enjoy our delicious breakfast before the race and relax in our genuine mineral pools, heated swimming pool or spa pools afterwards!
If you are arriving early in Rotorua, we can recommend plenty of other activities to keep you entertained until the bike race. How about discovering the Rotorua Museum, delving into Maori culture at Te Puia or taking a ride on the Skyline gondola? Or get into the mood for the Avanti 100K Flyer with the First Timers Workshop on bunch riding and more on Thursday 24 March or the Carbo Boost Buffet on Friday 1 April 2011!
