Published 2020-12-12

Here at the New Zealand Cycle Trail we LOVE the photos you share with us!

Enter your best summer cycling shot in our comp and be in to win a fantastic Great Ride package for two with the Timber Trail Lodge.

Get riding and get snapping! Show us the people you ride with, the places you go, the things that you see and do while on the trails.

Like our Facebook page (if you haven't already), and post your photo on Facebook using the hashtag #NZCTPhotoComp and/or tagging @nzcycletrail.

Entries close on Sunday 24 January 2021, with the winner announced Thursday 28 Jan on our Facebook page.

The prize (worth almost $1000) is a two-night package for two people staying at the fabulous, off-the-grid Timber Trail Lodge nestled in the heart of Pureora Forest Park. Includes all meals, and transport to the lodge (from the Timber Trail Shuttle & Bike Hire base) and to the start of the trail on day 1 of your ride. Availability: mid-week (not Friday/Saturday nights and bank holidays).

Many thanks to the lodge and shuttle folk for donating this epic prize.
