    Covid Stole The Kiwi.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I am regretfully informing everyone that the Ruapehu Motorcycle Club has come to a decision that the 2020 Cold Kiwi rally will be CANCELLED, due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid19.

    Despite the latest updates, we have chosen to err on the side of caution and hold our 45th Rally in 2021.

    We realise this announcement will be disappointing for a lot of you but we would rather make sure Covid19 has well and truly been kicked in the butt and have a bigger and better rally next year.

    The Club has collectively decided that the risk outweighs the gain in more ways than one.
    Along side other concerns, most importantly we do not want the rally to be potential cause of any Covid19 cases when we all know it only takes 1!!
    It’s very hard to plan such a big event when so much is still up in the air.
    This was no easy decision and we hope you understand.
    There is NO doubt that we will be back next year and we hope you all are too.
    We realise there are a lot of different view points out there about everything but we ask that you all are respectful of the Club’s decision and of other’s opinions.

    Thank you so much for your continuing support. We are positively looking forward to seeing you all in 2021.

    Dion Weedon
    Ruapehu Motorcycle Club President.
