The Event
Welcome, Haere mai...

The 2015 Anzac Singlespeed Championships
1 day, 1 gear...100 years... 


It's the first Monday-isation of Anzac Day, so it's a long weekend.

Your entry fee of $95.69 gets you...

A race up some hills and down some others...on Whakarewarewa Forest's fine trails (with refreshments).
A Big Kiwi Breakfast at the Pig & Whistle.
A fabbo 1-off T-shirt designed by Gaz at Nzo.
Be in to win a one-off Nzo | Ride Central Surly Karate Monkey, a women's cruiser bike from Ray White Real Estate and a big Rotorua Experience swag bag...

Enter after Sunday April 12 and there's NO t-shirt, no prize draw and a surcharge (which will all go to the RSA and Kidney Health New Zealand). 

It's  a celebration and commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli and the special connection with Australia on the battle-field and the trails.

We'll be making a substantial donation to the RSA and also Kidney Health New Zealand...

• Last time NZSSC were here was Anzac Weekend 2013 - Race day Saturday April 27 - it was the 6th birthday of the New Zealand Singlespeed Champs, first run by the Rotorua Singlespeed Society (the RSSS) in Whaka Forest, south of Rotorua in 2008.

Garth Weinberg and Erin Greene won ta moko for 1st man and woman...everyone else was 2nd equal...

Dunedin hosted the 2014 Champs and Rotorua won the hosting rights for 2015...

The 1st Pig and Whistle New Zealand Singlespeed Champs were run in Rotorua in 2008, and again in 2009.

And then in 2010 it was The Big Show with the Singlespeed Champs of the World - 1000 entrants from 30 countries - being raced at our place...

In the meantime, the NZ champs went on a bit of a tiki tour - Queenstown in 2010, Hawkes Bay in 2011, Nelson in 2012 and Dunedin in 2014.
In 2013, they'd came home for a quiet, little birthday celebration - beers were comsumed, lies were told, some fun was had...and the RSSS made a $5000 donation to the Cancer Society...

• We support Cancer Society NZ , 88BIKES, the RSA and Kidney Health New can, too...
