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 the SPCA

We’re immensely proud to support the SPCA, helping to drive a better future for the pets of Canterbury. As pet lovers ourselves, we have a mutual interest in furthering the care and protection of animals in need. We’d noticed that SPCA’s fleet was looking tired, with some vehicles not suited to their particular uses, so we worked with the SPCA’s team to put together a fleet they could be proud of.

We’re honoured to be able to provide the type of hard-working and dependable vehicles that the SPCA team needs to do what they do best, advancing the welfare of animals in our community.

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 2018 and Miles Continental are thrilled to be involved with the event for a third year running. ŠKODA New Zealand on board as an official 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.
