So its that time of year – the First of the seasons Parakai to Wellsford and back training rides.
The route is pretty simple. Park at the Parakai Hotpools.
Ride up SH16 towards Wellsford ( North ) which includes some pretty fun hill climbs
If you’re wanting to do 80km then you turn around at Mangakura ( the Hoteo River bridge ) and head back
Depending upon time and weather – we may make the full turnaround point the TOP of Mt Auckland ( at the look out ) rather than at Port Albert Rd – this will be confirmed on the day.
Start time for the long ride is 7am.
Coffee and BBQ included in the price.
DOC riders – $20 per rider
Non DOC riders $25 per rider. This covers support vehicles BBQ drinks and Free coffee!
We’re still looking for 2 or 3 support drivers ( with vehicles ) so anyone interested in doing this with a little more comfort please email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
