Adventure Ride – Start time 2 pm
56km of the best Mountain Biking Central Otago has to offer. This new ride is courtesy of local farmers who give us access for this once a year ride including a long steady climb with one steep pitch approximately 600m long then the most enjoyable 7km downhill you will experience. This ride is for the more experienced who want to try somewhere new with unsurpassed views. The Adventure Ride will start earlier than the others.

Look long and hard before you enter this ride, the climbs after 25km are the “Classic” course so you can compare. The predicted winning time will be around 3 hrs+ with the slower riders taking up to 6 hrs which means you should carry food and water! There is water at the top of the course around the 15km mark which is safe to drink. This is an awesome ride especially if you intend doing GODZONE or RED BULL DEFIANCE.
