Pedal on the Metal

We’re still a few months away from the 2nd Karioi Classic, but if you are keen to enter this year’s race, now is the time to start spinning those legs and get ready in time for the Raglan event of the year.

For those who were on another planet last July, the Karioi Classic is a mountain bike race around our beautiful maunga Mt Karioi. A challenging
46km ride on mainly gravel with magnificent views of The Tasman and West Coast. Last year’s race was a fantastic success. 240 riders from Auckland to Taupo showed up on the day and we had an exciting finale with 4 riders sprinting for victory. This was textbook stuff. And guess what, it’s going to be even better this year. No doubt that the sun will be out again. (we’ve got a 10 year contract with the weather gods), and this year we will have special awards for best single speed and cyclo-cross rider.

But you don’t have to be in it to win. Completing the race is victory on itself and being part of a peloton of 500 riders climbing up Te Hutewai is just amazing.

See you all on 31st July.
