Our Community

As a Canterbury-owned and operated business with a history spanning more than 20 years, we know how important it is to get behind our community. We’re proud to be involved with a number of local organisations, initiatives, and events.

Proud to Support Hayden Roulston

After a successful cycling career, Hayden has officially retired from professional cycling and has started up a coaching and wellness business in Canterbury. He has always had a great passion for cycling and now wants to help others pursure their cycling and sporting ambitions.

As our Miles Continental ŠKODA Ambassador, we have given Hayden Roulston the use of a ŠKODA Octavia RS complete with signwriting, as he carries out his coaching and various other contributions to cycling in Canterbury.

Hayden is available to take you out for a VIP test drive in a brand new ŠKODA! Simply choose which ŠKODA you’d like to test drive and decide on a time that works with both you and Hayden through our online form. He’ll then come and pick you up for a coffee and a chat.

Proud to Support Olivia Podmore

Miles Continental is proud to support one of our own local Cantabrians, Olivia Podmore. Olivia has an impressive track record, despite her young age, and recently headed to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics competing in a number of track cycling events.

When Olivia Podmore is one of New Zealand’s most promising young sports professionals. At 19 she has been cycling for a number of years and already has a long record of achievements.

Miles Continental ŠKODA and Le Race

New Zealand’s premier hill cycling event, Le Race, is returning in 2016 and Miles Continental are thrilled to be involved with the event for a second year running. This year we are very excited to have ŠKODA New Zealand on board as an official major sponsor.

Held right here in Christchurch, participants race a 100km course beginning in Christchurch’s Cathedral Square, traversing the Port Hills, to cross the finish line in the historic French settlement of Akaroa.

We have plenty of opportunities for you to get involved. You can join Team ŠKODA and access many exclusive membership benefits, including a free ŠKODA Cycling Jersey. Closer to home, you can also join our very own Miles Continental Cycle Wave Club. Whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced rider, we’d love for you to join us. We’ll be offering free training sessions and social events, along with some nutritional advice.

Sound like you? Register your interest and we’ll keep you posted.
