Offers and Competitions
Team and Group Incentives
At BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge we’re all about getting you and your friends together for a bit of fun and camaraderie. We have some great team and group incentives available below.
If you are a group of ten or more you can get a 10% discount off your entry.
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to access your unique 10% discount code.
As an extra incentive if you are a group of 30 riders or more, we're also going to give you free entries into the 2021 BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Chalenge. A group of 30 will receive one free entry into the 2021 event, with an additional free entry for each multiple of 10 riders over and above that eg. a group of 40 will receive 2 free entries into the 2021 event, a group of 50 will receive 3 free entries into the 2021 event and so on.
Other Group Challenges
It’s simple to win one of these other 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
And for groups of four or more you'll be eligible for the 10% entry discount (refer to the Group discount offer above).
The Ultimo Design A Tee promotion
While we’re at home in lockdown and maybe have some spare time, our friends at Ultimo Kiwi Made Cycle Clothing have a prize up for grabs.
Submit a design for the next BDO Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge tee-shirt, inspire us with a great design, and our favourite one will win four event tees.
Simply sketch up your idea for the next event tee, and post it as a photo on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CycleChallenge/
You never know, you could see your design on the next Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge tee shirt, and score yourself some tee shirts to wear yourself or giveaway to family or mates. Submissions can be anything from a hand drawn sketch to a digital drawing.
Entries close on Friday the 1st of May and some T’s & C’s apply.
And if you're looking for your next set of custom cycle kit, the boys at Ultimo may be locked-down, but they're keen to hear from you at email@example.com
