Tackle the Alps2Ocean challenge for Amnesty International Aotearoa NZ!

The Alps2Ocean challenge is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most stunning cycling trails. Listed as the longest of New Zealand’s 22 “Great Rides” it is a truly epic ride!

If you’re thinking of taking on a once in a lifetime adventure in 2022 while exploring some of the best sights and scenery Aotearoa has to offer then this challenge is for you.

On this incredible adventure you’ll see the Southern Alps in all their glory as you cycle through alpine settlements and down to the coast. Whether you’re a lover of mountains, open green space or natural wonders like glaciers and lakes, you’ll see it all.

Starting at the foot of the country’s highest mountain, you’ll cycle through 300km of beautiful scenery, finishing on the coast in Oamaru. The views on this trip really are spectacular, and make all that exercise feel easy! Plus, you’ll enjoy quiet country roads as you cycle and a lot of downhill tracks that go easy on the legs. E-bikes are an option too making this challenge suitable for all fitness levels. Are you in?

For this incredible journey you’ll join like minded people making a difference with two amazing charities to #Ride4Rights.

Now, more than ever we need to come together to build the society we want to see. One where refugees can find a safe place to call home, people in detention are treated with respect and dignity, and human rights defenders can freely stand up for us all. Fundraising for Amnesty International is an exciting way to stand (or ride!) with humanity and help  create that future of a world based on kindness, justice and aroha.

As Amnesty International takes no funding from governments, corporations or political organisations, we rely on the fundraising and generosity of people like you. The funds you raise through this challenge will help power critical human rights research, advocacy and campaigning right here in Aotearoa that has impacts all over the world.
