Round the Tararuas

  • Upper Hutt railway stn


Registration is closed

Minor route changes  31st Janurary to avoid as much main road as possible.  

Extra caution is required when returning down SH1 south of Levin when crossing bridges.  Always stop, look for traffic before crossing a bridge. 

Every year we hold this classic ride and with a bloody good reason:  Its a classic.  Its got everything a classic should have: long climbs - twisty technical descents, cafes, pies, quiet rural roads in blistering heat, dinner in Palmy (thats not really that epic but with 180km you'll think its amazing), followed by the sunset over Kapiti, and a little bump over a quiet mountain road to get back to Upper Hutt.    

2 sets of lights and reflective jacket are essential.

Janet Chilton will be the ride organiser.  Please email her Janet Chilton <> if you have any questions.
