The NZ Singlespeed Championships are back!

One of the most entertaining events on the New Zealand mountain bike calendar is returning to Rotorua.

While the championships are slightly eccentric, with extravagant costumes and tattoos for the fastest man and woman, the competition also has a heart of gold and a serious side, with substantial donations to charities since its beginnings in 2008.

So head to Rotorua for Anzac weekend and support the riders as they race up some hills and down some others on Whakarewarewa Forest's finest trails.

Keep up to date with the build up to the event by visiting the Singlespeed Champs Facebook page. 

a modern take on our most famous love song

A passionate modern version of New Zealand’s most famous love song, Pokarekare Ana, has been produced, courtesy of former Supergroove frontman turned composer, Karl Steven.

A 30 second snippet of the song has already been heard in homes across the country as the soundtrack to the 'Famously Rotorua' television commercials.

Pokarekare Ana is about the forbidden love between legendary Maori figures Hinemoa and Tutanekai, who were separated by their families and the waters of Lake Rotorua.
