    There are three sections to this ride.

    Section 1:

    The first section covers the North of Auckland This leg is 380kms long with 5,425 metres of climbing. There are hills with sections of steep gradients. This leg starts from the Auckland Museum. By utilising the North Western cycle paths, most of the traffic should be long gone by the time we hit the roads. Once out of Auckland the only overnight food stop, is at Wellsford (116kms, 147kms), which has a Caltex and MacDonalds. There is a 500m section of gravel road at the 140km mark, heading back into Wellsford. This first section finishes back in Auckland.

    Section 2:

    The second leg is an easier section of 382kms, with climbing of 3,840m. Heading down Great South Road, the route meanders down to Morrinsville. There are more locations for food and sleep.

    Around the 528km mark there is a 3km section of flat gravel road.

    Section 3:

    The third, final section is 442kms long with 3,782m of climbing. The section between Ngatea and Pukekohe (130kms), has limited food stops late at night, so some discretion is required around the timing of the run.

    It has just come to my attention that over the Anzac weekend, the V8Supercars will be racing at Hampton Downs. This shouldn't affect riders too much, as motorists will be travelling on SH1, but it may be prudent about accommodation around the Pukekohe, Te Kauwhata areas.

    Checkpoints will be:

    0kms: Auckland Museum

    115kms: Wellsford

    260kms: Helensville

    377kms: Newmarket (Auckland)

    483kms: Port Waikato

    547kms: Te Kauwhata

    639kms: Te Kauwhata

    731kms: Taupiri

    784kms: Morrinsville

    897kms: Matamata

    979kms: Ngatea

    1,104kms: Mercer

    1,200kms: Auckland Museum (Finish).



    Base entry fee will be $15.00.  The aim is to keep the cost of entry as low as possible, with no surprises.
