Starting in Carterton outside of the 'Wild Oats' cafe this ride navigates around Lake Wairarapa, through Martinborough and ascends the Kourarau Hill, then a thrilling decent into Wainuioru and finally back to Carterton via the Mangatarere valley. This extremely scenic ride is 204km long with 1,505 metres of easy climbing.

Road surfaces are excellent however other than Featherston and Martinborough there are no services without detouring off the route. Remember to bring lights and reflective gear in case you get caught out. There are three photo controls at the Weir on Lake Wairarapa, Martinborough and the top of Kourarau Hill.
