About TONZ and Tearfund

Join us on an adventure of a lifetime! We're excited to present to you the opportunity to cycle in the iconic Tour of New Zealand. Riding as one Peloton Tour 2019 is taking you on an adventure beyond your expectations. We will be fundraising to bring freedom for those are trapped in sex trafficking.

The money raised through the Tearfund Poverty Cycle will help support international and local projects. 4.5 million people are victims of forced commercial sexual exploitation (approximately the population of New Zealand) 98% of whom are women and girls.

Get Started


The Race

Your Tour will begin in Queenstown. Simply book your flight or jump in a car ready Friday 5th April to pick up your race pack. After four days of fun and racing in the South Island we are flying out of Christchurch to arrive in Rotorua Tuesday night.

Wednesday in Rotorua is your rest day. Relax, wash some riding kit, take lunch with a few new cycling buddies from around the world, ride one of the internationally acclaimed mountain bike trails through the forests, past the boiling mud pools of this volcanic wonderland. There's also a wonderful Maori concert party after our Peloton dinner in the evening.
