Pāpāmoa’s Powerco Pedal and Pump event at the end of October will follow a uniquely Halloween theme with plenty of opportunities to win bikes and prizes.

“We’ll be working within the parameters of the new Covid-19 restrictions,” says Pāpāmoa Unlimited event organiser Julia Manktelow, “so rather than having you all together at once, we’ll have the track open from 9am-5pm for a contactless, zero waste, socially distanced digital scavenger hunt.

“We’re going full Pap style and looking for the best-dressed Halloweeners out there on the trail and judging from all the uploads we get. We know how epic you are at this, so we'll make sure the prizes match your efforts!”

There will be prizes for best-dressed boy, girl, dad, mum, grandparent, group and family, with participants uploading their own photos to the event’s Facebook page. There will also be spot prizes and four new kids’ bikes up for grabs thanks to Powerco, Pāpāmoa Unlimited, My Ride Mt Maunganui, Vivo, Pāpāmoa Warehouse, Secret Spot Hot Tubs and Onewave NZ.

“I’ll hold a live prize giving on Facebook at 6pm on October 31 to let our lucky ghouls know who won big,” says Julia.

Julia asks if any local businesses want to be involved to help “create community spirit and engage with locals”, to get in touch with her.

“I’ll work with you to help you be part of making magic in our beautiful big little city at the beach, Pāpāmoa.”

The event, subject to Covid-19 regulations, will be held between 9am-5pm on Sunday, October 31. More information is available Pāpāmoa Unlimited Facebook page
