EVENT: NZ’s mountain biking “Test Piece” for endurance athletes and people with a sense of adventure.
LOCATION: Lake Hawea, Wanaka, on the foot hills of the Southern Alps, New Zealand.
Appropriately described as the longest and most scenic MTB race in NZ.
Choose one of the three circumnavigations of Lake Hawea near Wanaka at 160, 125 or 95 km and enjoy the 100% pure South Island High Country Station scenery and remoteness on a ride you will never forget.
Or as an introduction, head in the other direction and complete the 35km Traverse riding through private farm land, traversing the mighty Clutha and Hawea Rivers, and back to the Lake Hawea Hotel. A great option for beginners and intermediate riders as an introduction to the Contact Epic Experience.
