Arrive by 8:15am (or before) - hit the gravel by 8:30am
This is a gravel road endurance ride.
FITNESS / PACE:
You need to be fit enough to fairly comfortably handle a ride that spans 55km/4hrs.
We do operate a "No Drop" ride policy but please ensure you are personally are up for the full duration as it is one big loop with no real quick escape route back to the start.
As this is a Gravel ride road bikes will not be suitable. Mountain bikes are recommended however you could potentially get away with a hybrid bike that has fat tyres. What ever you choose to ride please ensure it is mechanically sound for obvious safety reasons.
Puhoi Domain,Puhoi Rd - In the centre of Puhoi village , there is the Dairy on the left and then Sale yards Rd, where the Puhoi Pub is located, directly opposite is a bridge leading to the domain. Plenty of parking and public toilets in the Domain.
Ride is approx 55 kms and should take approx. 4 hours depending on pace and conditions - but everyone should bring along their sense of adventure!
That is approx 55kms in total of which 80+% of it will be on gravel roads, the remaining will be some tarmac connecting some roads.
AFTER RIDE CELEBRATION:
Lunch and drinks at the pub at the end of the ride ,
Bring a change of clothing
If anyone wants to carpool I suggest you mention it in the comments and see who can help out
