Entry Details

Online Entries will open 1 June 2019


dates fees


We use EventPlus for our online entries, which is an online entry system provided and supported by kiwis.



You may already have an EventPlus profile if you’ve entered other cycling events within the last 12 months or our 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017and 2018 events. If you have a profile already you can quickly login with your email and password (reset available if you have forgotten this!) Or zoom through and create your profile which just has to be done once, then you can enter this year’s event and others. You can log in and update your profile any time, and create sub-profiles for others sharing your email address (like your partner & children).

Select your Bike Barn Round the Lake or BDO Huka Challenge start group before you start your online entry.

Do not confuse ambition with ability.

Please note that all eBikes for the Bike Barn Round the Lake must start in Start Group 6

Start Group Maps

You’ll receive an email confirmation once you’ve entered and paid. (Check your junk mail if you haven't received it.) You can log in anytime and resend this to yourself if you lose it!

If you need help while you complete your entry just click on the ‘Help ?’ (bottom right of screen) and the EventPlus team can assist with any entry enquiries which you may have. If you have enquiries about the Event itself then drop us an email at amy@cyclechallenge.com.

If you need to change any details of your registration this can be done up until and including 3 November. Up until this date you are able to log back into your registration using your email and password and amend start groups, emergency numbers etc., but not Heart Kids donations. To change your category you must email us so we can make that change for you.

You can change your event category up until 3 November at no charge. Any changes after 3 November will incur an admin fee of $15.  An additonal cost will also apply if you are changing to an event category with a higher entry price. 

After 25th November all changes need to be made at the event. Please collect your original bib and come into the Great Lake Center to the Change my Category table.
