ROTORUA - GISBORNE - ROTORUA
Rotorua to Whakatane 97km riding, 1000m climbing. This day involves some unique gravel and off-road trails and also the busiest road of the trip for the final 2/3. As this is a warm up day we try to keep the group together and keep the support vehicle close by for safety reasons.
Whakatane to Gisborne (initial 35km shuttle) 55km riding, 1100m climbing, 45 km lunchtime shuttle, 55km, 300m climbing (the post-lunch ride is 50km of primarily downhill riding – dropping over 500m in elevation)
Note we shuttle the first (yawn) 30kms here.
Gisborne to Waikaremoana (50km initial shuttle) 94km, 1400m.
Waikaremoana to Rotorua 95km, 1400m (followed by optional 50km shuttle and final 20km ride/mtb, or 70km shuttle)
At the end of the trip we rest up in Rotorua for the night – the next day you can either depart under your own steam or have the use of a mtb until 1pm, free, on us, to explore by yourself the wonderful Redwood forest mtb park.
