The Auckland Cycle Touring Association (ACTA) is a friendly group which welcomes casual guests and new members. It is a non profit recreational organisation whose main purpose is to provide enjoyable, safe and non competitive bicyle riding and related social activities. The aim is enjoyment. Nobody gets left behind. Annual membership is only $20 per person or household, with no other charges for rides.
Social events include a Christmas function, progressive breakfasts, pot luck dinners and the occasional movie. There are also popular quiz nights and petanque, Members are eagerly awaiting lockdowns to stop so we can get back to riding our bikes and enjoying these social events.
ACTA members are widely travelled and can provide advice on cycle gear, and routes around Auckland, New Zealand and internationally.
