Rotorua 'Supermayor' Kevin Winters on the Whakarewarewa Nursery Hill track at 60kph during the Rotorua Bike Festival's The Redwoods Coast event.

The inaugural Rotorua Bike Festival concluded at the weekend and was a huge success.

Organisers are now getting ready for next year's event and funding has been secured.

A number of events were so popular, organisers had to close registrations. One of the more popular was The Redwoods Coast event. Amongst the competitors was Rotorua mayor Kevin Winters, who took to his bike wearing a Superman costume.

Mayor Winters said the whole festival was great and helps reinforce Rotorua as the biking capital of the country.

"I was pleased to be able to participate in a number of events. The feedback I've received from people from all over the country and overseas has been overwhelmingly positive."
