Completing the VAM Challenge is hard, but struggling for food and housing in a pandemic is way harder - we want to help.
No matter your fitness level The VAM Challenge is hard: climb 1,000 vertical meters by bike as fast as possible on one hill. As the VAM has brought joy (and pain!) to the cycling community, we recognize that it's a privilege to have the time and money to enjoy riding. It's a really tough time to be struggling for food and housing: prices seem to be going up faster than our sweaty backsides up the local hill. So we want to show support to the broader community and donate to the Auckland City Mission. And if there wasn't reason enough to give, the Auckland Hill Climb Series will match the first $500 in donations, doubling your contribution.
