A scenic 28k ride for riders of all age & ability
This is a chance for mtn bikers who aren't keen on the multisport or duathlon options to have a crack at this awesome ride.
The 28km mountain bike-only event has an exciting course complete with single-track and a big climb that is rewarded with views out over Porirua and the Tasman Sea.
Expected times 1.5-3.5hrs.
The course is something special. It's starts with a loop in Takapuwahia Reserve (thanks to permission from Te Hiko Puaha Trust) with some climbing, single-track and sweet sweeping downhill and a couple of hairy moments for good measure. Then you ride back past HQ before following cycle paths to the new single-track networks on Colonial Knob/Rangituhi. There's a long climb up onto the main ridge, but it leads to awesome views before more sweet downhill and spectacular single-track before heading back to Whitireia to finish.
This ride is not to be missed!
