About

Ramblers Cycling Club is one of New Zealand’s largest & oldest cycling clubs with roots dating back to the 1890s.

We have more than 300 members from all over Hawke’s Bay.

Ramblers Cycling Club races cater for almost any ability with seven grades (A-G) so people can ride with others of similar ability & fitness.

Our weekly Saturday club races operate year round, rain or shine & often attract more than 120 riders. Ramblers have a great reputation for running successful events.

Take a look at our varied race programme including road races, time trials and criteriums & mini tours.

Visitors are especially welcome. No need to book, just come along to the next club race we would love to see you there!

Ramblers Cycling Club also runs major events each year and sometimes runs national events.
