The courses offered will cater for every level of cyclist, first time to elite.
A few year’s ago it was Oscar winning Peter Jackson directing the action as Lord of the Rings was shot in the area, this time around it’s award winning race team from Top of the South Events calling the shots as the all girl fields set off on circuits of 37 or 76km, catering to newcomers to organised cycling as well as the more proficient. The stunning Southern Alps are the picture perfect backdrop to these beautiful courses.
While the short course of 37km has little in the way of ups and downs, it will present a challenge to novices with the Canterbury Nor’wester always ready to throw a little extra into the challenge.
The longer course of 76km is more of a challenge and is an option for all well trained recreational riders as well as catering for A, B, C and D grade licensed club riders.
This is a great distance to cut your teeth on as preparation for the longer events later in the year such as the Graperide and Around Lake Brunner. The two anti clockwise loop courses are designed for maximum rider safety and convenience, with the riders returning to the start area to complete the event at Methven.
Then watch the post ride celebrations begin and experience the true spirit of the famous Methven hospitality.
There will be "Cat Walks" showing off some of the latest womens sports fashions wear on the Friday evening and again in the early afternoon prior to prize giving and post event celebrations.
We can absolutely guarantee a truck load of fun and laughter with the odd little surprise that will make this one of the most memorable occasions you have ever had.
$70,000 of spot prizes and giveaways from our wonderful family of sponsors along with a combination of sponsors products, cash and trophy acknowledgements for place getters in the various recreational and licensed rider categories.
Don't forget to bring your swimwear as the Resort has a lovely big swimming pool which runs at a constant 27 degrees to look after those tired and wary bodies!
So don't wait round and enter now and commit yourself to serious all out fun and remember the event is limited to 1000 entries!
