All distances start and finish in the picturesque village of Te Kauwhata, which is conveniently just 2km off State Highway One mid-way between Auckland and Hamilton. Each of the distances are predominantly flat with gentle undulations. Riders will be travelling on a safe and well marshalled course with sealed roads and minimal traffic.
All routes will be clearly marked with a comprehensive traffic management and marshalling system in place. Riders on the longer distances will pass through lakeland and forest areas, making for a truly enjoyable ride. Start times are staggered to allow similar finishing times, with prize-giving at 1pm to allow all riders to attend.
Electronic transponders will be provided to all riders to ensure accurate recording of ride times and each and every rider will be eligible for good spot prizes.
