‘No-nonsense mountain bike and road cycling clothing. Conceived by cycle nuts, refined by the style police and constructed in New Zealand from hi-performance fabrics.’
We couldn’t be more pleased to have Ground Effect on board as our preferred supplier. Our tour leaders are all kitted out and loving putting their Ground Effect shorts, gloves, socks and shellwear to the test in all conditions on tour.
We are SO excited to have a partnership with POC Sports. Founded in 2005, POC has a history of exploring new ideas to create innovative products, spurred on by its mission and scientific approach. Our tour leaders will be donning their choice of POC’s highly rated and feature full helmets, plus eyewear that fits seamlessly for the most comfortable ride!
We recommend the POC Kortal Race MIPS or the OMNE Air MIPS helmets, and to match, the DEVOUR or the CRAVE Clarity Sunglasses. So if your helmet is older than 3/4 years or it is looking a bit worse for wear, now is the time to upgrade!

Tiaki means to care for people, place and culture. Aotearoa New Zealand (and this earth in general) is precious and everyone who lives and travels here must take responsibility to look after in. The Tiaki promise is a commitment to care for this Whenua (land) now and for our future generations. We will act as guardians to protect and preserve our home and ask our bikers to respect these values and follow our lead.
Based in Nelson, New Zealand, Nancy Loves Bikes are inspired by gorgeous patterns, cool streetwear and awesome trails. Wherever possible they use sustainable organic fabrics and manufacturing processes. After all, we love having crystal clear rivers, pristine forests and some of the world’s best riding at our back door.
Nancy supplies all our bikers and crew with reusable snack bags when you join us on tour her in Aotearoa New Zealand. Happy Snacking!!

Responsible Travel want you to have truly memorable holiday, and we want local communities and wildlife to benefit too. They inspire to make tourism a more caring industry, one that improves places rather than ruins them. We do this in three ways:
– Try to lead by example with the best practices in responsible tourism.
– Prove the win: win (better holiday for you, better for local places and people) of responsible tourism.
– Target bad practice in our industry with activism and campaigns.
