Team and Group Challenges

At BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge we’re all about getting you and your friends together for a bit of fun and camaraderie. We also want to give you the chance to take away a year's worth of bragging rights. 

BDO Teams Challenge

Whether your a work place team, a cycling group or a group of friends, we've teamed up with BDO to create a wicked teams challenge.

The BDO Teams Challenge is really simple to be part of. Simply register your team of four (or multiple teams of four) as wanting to take part in the BDO Teams Challenge when you do your event entry. It is free to enter the BDO Teams Challenge and the entry fee is discounted 10%.

Your team of four need to ride in the same event category and there will be a winner for each of the below categories:

Bike Barn Round The Lake
Half The Lake
Quarter Lake

BDO Huka Challenge
BDO Huka Steamer
BDO Huka Teaser

The winning team will be the one with the best cummulative time of their first three riders in the team.

BDO will also put you in the draw to be one of ten teams that they host at the BDO BBQ at the event village after your ride.

Remember entries in the Teams Challenge save you 10% so get your team togehter!


If you are a group of four or more but dont want to enter the teams you can still get a 10% entry discount, please contact for more information.

Other Group Challenges

It’s simple to win one of these group challenges. All you have to do is be the group that rides the greatest total distance, so a big group doing our shorter distances could have as much chance of winning as a smaller group who take on our longer course options. These challenges are:

  • Schools Challenge
  • Rotary Challenge
  • Tertiary Challenge

And for groups of four or more you'll be eligible for a 10% entry discount, please contact for more information.

Prizes for Team and Group Challenges

Each prize includes:

  • A certificate to hang on your wall
  • An impressive trophy to proudly display for the year
  • And a trophy to keep as bragging rights forever
