After 3 years of perfect weather and a record-breaking opening weekend, the Rotorua Bike Festival is being affected by the current heavy rain and strong winds.
Wednesday’s Sport Bay of Plenty Tykes on Trikes was cancelled and Revolve Rotorua’s Dipper Dash, postponed.
“It’s the first time in 6 years we’ve cancelled,” said Tykes on Trikes organiser, Kirsty Carling. “But we’ll be back at the Festival in 2017.”
The Dipper Dash will be rescheduled till March.
“It’s still part of the Festival, just not this week,” said David Crowley from the Bike Festival Charitable Trust. “We’ll be supporting it whenever it is.”
