History is brought to life in this celebration of the Taranaki Round the Mountain Classic cycle race.


For a century, cyclists have tested their mettle in this hundred-mile race around the majestic cone of Mt Taranaki. New Zealand's longest-running race, the mountain circuit has been a prestigious yardstick for top amateurs and professionals to compare themselves with past and present champions. Collected here, along with race memorabilia and photographs, are stories of sweat, tears and nail-biting finishes, broken bikes, coveted prizes and the early triumphs of cycling legends.
