E-bike festival coming to Arrowtown
Riders will descend on Arrowtown in November for a weekend of curated trail experiences, in New Zealand’s inaugural Cyclorama.
On November 13 and 14, e-bike 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.
Event organiser Dave Gibson says that 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 offering a weekend with a great mix of fun activities, unique experiences and the chance to experience the incredible rivers, lakes and mountains that Arrowtown and its surrounds are famous for,” he says.
The festival will boast nine different trails and rides themed around birdwatching, art, beer and wine tasting plus a special ‘Tour de Gourmet’. More adventurous riders will be able to 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.
