Cycle for Life has been organ- ised and run by Bucklands Beach Lions Club for the past 15 years. Set in the magnificent Cleve- don countryside, Cycle for Life is an unbeatable ride through pic- ture-perfect scenery with 25km, 45km and 107km distances for elite and fun riders. “We had 500 riders last year,” says Cycle for Life committee chairman Bob Baker. “Any- one can enter. The two shorter courses are designed to be less challenging.” The full route takes entrants from the Clevedon Showgrounds through the Hunua Valley with rolling pastoral hills on one side and bush-covered ranges oppo- site. It then heads towards Man- gatangi before descending down to the coast for views of the Firth of Thames and Coromandel in the distance. Riders follow the coast at Kaiaua, drop down to the Orere Point turn-off and hit another climb through picturesque bush before a fast downhill run into Kawakawa Bay. After skirt- ing the bay it’s inland through gently rolling country to the fin- ish at the showgrounds. “It’s a very scenic course and well marshalled, which adds to the pleasure and spirit of the day,” says Mr Baker. “The atmosphere among the riders is really good. People can ride along and chat amongst themselves.” The event is run by volunteers, with all funds raised going to improve the health and life skills of young Kiwis. Adhering to the motto “we give our children a hand up, not a handout”, the Cycle for Life charitable trust has donated tens of thousands of dollars to youth education causes. This year proceeds are going to Lions Quest Skills for Living, Books in Homes, Camp Quality and Kidz First Hospital eye glass fund. Cycle for Life has already gen- erated $33,000 for the eye glass fund and $11,000 towards Books in Homes from previous years’ events. Information and registration forms can be found online at cycleforlife.co.nz, before picking up an entry pack from Avantiplus stores the day before the ride. Entry costs $45 for the 107km distance. Start times on race day, Sun- day, May 19, are staggered from 9am to 11.30am depending on distance and ability. Prize-giving is at 3pm. Cycle for life and for fun Cycle for Life, run by Bucklands Beach Lions Club, takes in the countryside from Clevedon to the coast and back.
