Under 5hr Round Taupo Training Group

The under 5hr training group is fundamentally a training resource for anyone who is aiming to complete the Lake Taupo Challenge in under 5 hours. Adequate fitness is only half the battle, the training group will help fill in the other important details as well by making available training tips, nutritional advice, skills and technique seminars, a 16 week training program and targeted group rides.

We believe there is a large number of cyclists with the ability and the desire to complete the lake Taupo Challenge in under 5 hours. We also believe that by getting these cyclists together, arming them with information and training as a group that there is a greater chance of achieving this goal.

For full details see the Under 5h Training Group Info Sheet
