Riverlock Motu 160

14th October 2017

 

Mountain Bike 65KM and Road Cycle 90km


The Riverlock Motu 160 offers a unique cycling challenge that encompasses mountain biking and road cycling. The course is considered the most spectacular cycling event in New Zealand. The mountain bike stage follows the historic Motu road first used by Te Kooti, which later became the only direct route between Poverty Bay and the Bay of Plenty.
You can enter either as an individual or a two-person team. The 65km mountain bike stage is raced together with the Motu Challenge mountain bike competitors. Multisporters then split off at Motu to complete their run, ride and paddle, while Motu 160 competitors get onto their road bikes and cycle 90km back over Traffords Hill and down Waioeka Gorge to Opotiki.
This event is ideal for Iron-athletes and a great season build up for all cycling codes. Whether you are into off-road or on-road cycling, this course will ensure you have some solid miles under your belt come race season.

Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge

18th November 2017

 

Olympic Gold Medal Rower Hamish Bond streeted the field in the inaugural 158km Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge in December 2016. Over 600 riders enjoyed the technical and scenic course that winds its way from Richmond to near the Abel Tasman National Park and back in a loop, taking in stunning scenery like Kaiteriteri Beach. This years edition on November 18 is slightly shorter with the solo at 155km and improvements have been made to create a sprint finish and incorporate a victory lap on the new Saxton Velodrome. A great springboard into the summer season, this is an event you will want to be part of.
