Catering for Cyclists of All Abilities

Matamata Peddlers Cycling Club is a group of cyclists varying in ages and ability who enjoy cycling in good company for leisure, pleasure and for the challenge.

Formed in 2005 the club is growing rapidly, with over 100 financial members to-date.

If you are just getting into cycling, come along and learn how to cope with riding in groups.

It is important for people contemplating riding with Matamata Peddlers to understand what we are about - which is safety, fun, improving fitness, and comradeship. Click here for some cycling safety tips.

We don't leave anyone stranded and out there on their own.

Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge Entries

For those of you wishing to enter the Lake Taupo Challenge this year in November, the Club has a discount code available (to financial members) to enable a discount on your entry fee. This code can be used for any of the disciplines - mountain bike, any of the road bike events, and also the kid's entries (you would need to have a family membership to benefit your children's entry).

We are limited to the number of times this code can be used and accordingly if you require it, and have paid your subs for this financial year (which fell due on 1 June), please email Joanne and she will provide you with the code. We need to keep track of the number of times the code is issued and therefore it would appreciated if you didn't share it with others, but have them request it themselves.

Join Us

Current annual club subscription is $25 per person or $50 per family.

You are welcome to join our group rides as a visitor for a short time (e.g 3 rides).

If you intend to join our group regularly we encourage you to complete a membership form and pay the annual subscription.
