History


Racing around the Historic Victorian precinct in the town of Oamaru, New Zealand ( pronounced 'Om-a-roo' ) was reinstated in 1994.

There have been ten annual tours starting from various parts of New Zealand. They normally last 4-5 days and have started from such places as Mount Cook, Queenstown, Dunedin and Wellington. The end of the tour consides with Heritage week in Oamaru on thursday of that week so there is a Garden party and Victorian Ball one can attend if the legs are still up to it. On Saturday there is racing for the cycles around the Historic precinct. On Sunday there are novelty events as part of the Victorian fĂȘte which is run by the Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust.

The OOCC now has clubrooms and bicycle museum based in the Historic area on the corner of Wansbeck and Harbour streets.
