Tonight's Bike Speedway, part of Rotorua's Bike Festival, has been cancelled due to the wet weather.

Rotorua Bike Festival media manager Graeme Simpson, said the area was very slippery.

"It's not a surface we want to cut up, we think it's a really good call by the organisers," Mr Simpson said.

The Bike Speedway was supposed to happen at 5pm at the Government Gardens - in front of the Rotorua Museum.
