MOUNTAIN BIKE ONLY (24km)

________________________________________________________________________

The 24km mountain bike event has an exciting new course for 2016 with lots of single track and a big climb that is rewarded with views out over Porirua and the Tasman Sea.

Race Pack pickup (1st April) – details here
Race Day timetable (2nd April) – details here (8:30am: Race Briefing for Mountain Bike only and Duathlon events at HQ; 9am: Start)

The course is something special. It’s starts with a loop in Takapuwahia Reserve (Ngati Toa land) with some climbing, single track and sweet sweeping downhill and a couple of hairy moments for good measure. Then you pass back through HQ again before following cycle paths to the new single track networks on Colonial Knob/Rangituhi. There’s a tough climb up onto the main ridge, but it leads to awesome views before more sweet single track descending. This ride is not to be missed!

Important Notes
> The course is challenging but achievable, with expected finish times between 1.5-3hrs.
> Entrants must be 16 years or older. Younger entrants may be allowed entry on a case by case basis; parents/guardians should contact the race director.
