The Flight Centre K2 Road Cycle Classic is a 192km road bike event in Coromandel, starting and finishing in Whitianga. There is also an elite 96km event, the Cervelo K1.
The event is named after Kuaotunu, a community on the wild eastern coastline of the Coromandel Peninsula. In Maori, the name Kuaotunu means "to inspire fear in young animals". The 2 represents the almost 200km that the ride will cover. It follows a scenic and varied route, traveling through sub tropical forest, pacific coastlines, rural farmland and the Pohutukawa coastline of the Hauraki Gulf.
