Papakura is the scene of the next three longer distance rides for Kiwirandonneurs.
Matamata is out of the picture at the moment, we wait for everything to open up again.
Starting with a 400km ride (3,077m), the course takes a 330km return run down to Morrinsville, before finishing with a short 70km leg out to Pukekohe and back.
Start time is (I can't believe I want to get up this early in the middle of winter) 6am, This will assist in the food stops throughout the day.
And if you finish early enough, there is a Muscle Care Massage right by the finish line.
