Cape Palliser Epic

8:00 am - 6:00 pm



Spent too much time on the road? The Cape Palliser Epic rides the iconic route from Martinborough along the rugged South Wairarapa coastline to the Cape Palliser Lighthouse, then across a challenging coastal track to White Rock and back to Marty. This is not a ride for your skinny tired plastic fantastic so brush off your Gravel, Cyclo, Mountain or anything with 32mm or wider tires and we will see you there!

This ride is a 154km  Gravel Brevet, and operates under Kiwi Randonneurs Gravel Rules and is a non BCP event. The time-limit for a 154km Brevet is 12.5 hours.

Start/Finish for this ride is at Memorial Square Martinborough.

Checkpoints are at 69km Cape Palliser Lighthouse, 132k Corner of Ruakokoputuna and Blue Rock roads.
