WIN! The Great Rides of New Zealand Autumn photo comp

Published 2022-03-23

Mellow autumn days are perfect for a spot of cycling photography – and we’d love to see what you’ve been snapping!

Enter your best autumn cycling shot in our comp and be in to win a $250 Evo Cycles voucher, or a Kennett Brothers' guidebook.

Falling leaves are as good as gold, but feel free to send us any moment or memory you want to share. Maybe that’s a portrait of your best biking buddy, or a particularly handsome lamington at a trailside cafe. Perhaps it’s a magnificent landscape in mellow light, or a quirky sign or strange sight that gave you a laugh.

Subscribe to our newsletter (if you haven't already), and post your photo on Facebook using the hashtag #GreatRidesPhotoComp and/or tagging @nzcycletrail.

Entries close on Sunday 24 April 2022, with the winner announced Thursday 28 April on our Facebook page.

Get riding and get snapping!
