Following the purchase of event owners U Leisure Limited by the University of Waikato, the REV Cycle Race 2017 is postponed with a view to reintroducing the event in 2018.
For the last 11 years, U Leisure has focused on delivering an exceptional cycling experience for riders of all ages and abilities through the REV Cycle Race – a mass participation road cycling event taking place across Waipa’s beautiful rolling countryside. Following a thorough review and takeover by shareholders the University of Waikato, it was determined that U Leisure will cease to operate as a company, with staff to be integrated into various functions across the University. Therefore, U Leisure will be unable to safely and effectively deliver the REV Cycle Race to the standard expected by participants, events staff and other key stakeholders. It is for this reason that the event will be postponed in 2017. Efforts will be made to see the return of the event in 2018, as new event management opportunities are being evaluated with a view to ensuring that the REV Cycle Race continues to engage cyclists across New Zealand for years to come. More information to follow shortly.
