Group Ride Information for Sunday 16th October 2016

The Yellow Jersey Group: Gary Clareburt

The K2 Simulation Ride proved to be a good pre-event test, the torrential rain did not dampen efforts.

Continuing with the K2/Taupo theme, a final hit out on Sunday with an amended RTB ride, over Cote du Paek, Moonshine, through Silverstream and up the Blue Mountains, down Wallaceville then up Mangaroa and down to Te Marua then over the Aka’s with coffee at Relish. 

The distance totals 130km, a number of bail out options exist for those wishing for reduced kms.  Also another good opportunity to practice re-fuelling/hydration for the big event. For those wishing to add additional kms, a loop of Peka Peka or including the Fingers is an option. 

Total distance approx. 130kms and 1676m - Coffee at Relish
