Kapiti Cycling Club

Twilight Series Sponsored by:bikingmad

Need a change of scenery after too many "local loops"?  Looking for a challenge?  This could be just the ticket!  Doug Barrett has put a great ride plan on the table, in the spirit of the Club's famous BIG Day outs. 

"We are creating a Gravel Big Day Out on Sunday 31 October, start 8am at the rest stop park beside the Waiouru Police Station.

We plan to follow the Turakina Valley Gravel ride route – see below. It's out and back with a loop of around 120km and 1602m of climbing.

So anyone keen to come along to join us on this adventure, let me know. Once we know who and how many may go, we can look at sharing transport.

It will be a fun, all day ride, to enjoy the countryside and take photos.  Ride your e-bike, gravel bike - I'm doing it on my mountain bike.

We have booked to stay at the Top 10 Holiday Park at Ohakune Saturday and Sunday nights, links for suggested accommodation below.

Cheers, Doug
