Cycling Capacity

A number of Cycling discipline age groups have reached or are nearing capacity. If your desired event/ age group is not displayed during registration, please follow the prompts to register your interest via the waitlist. WMG2017 Cycling competition organisers will be in contact with individuals if an existing athlete withdraws from the competition.

Registration Close Date

Athlete registrations for World Masters Games 2017 close 3 March 2017 (NZT). You must register by this date if you plan to compete in the Games. Note that disciplines/events will close early if they reach capacity as numbers are strictly limited.

3 March 2017 is also the date by which teams must be registered and have met their minimum athlete numbers including essential non-playing official roles. Team minimums vary by sport and information is detailed in the Sports Information Guide for each sport.

Additional team members over and above team minimums can continue to join existing teams until 31 March 2017 however a late entry fee of $50 will apply.

If you’re partaking in the Track Cycling event and need low cost accommodation, there are single rooms and dorms available at St Peter’s School, located very close to the Avantidrome. Prices vary but are around NZD$40-$50 per person per night including linen, and meals are also available for a small additional cost. Some houses have single rooms on offer and others the full dorm – in the case when a full dorm is requested, the price remains the same irrespective of the number of beds filled. This is a great option for those wanting affordable accommodation close to the action. The children who board at the school will be on holiday and rooms are available 22-30 April. Please email hire@stpeters.school.nz to book, and ensure you include your group or individual requirements (dates, group size etc). Note that this accommodation is available on a first come first served basis.
