Come and ride another epic mixed surface route that takes in quintessential New Zealand countryside and rugged east coast scenery. Our route starting in Masterton from the McDonald’s car park zips out across the Wairarapa country-side over Gladstone Hill where the gravel begins as you make your way generally down-hill to the coastal settlement of Riversdale beach.
From there on sealed roads we make our way through the backroads to Castlepoint, then back on rural roads to Masterton. This is a BRM ride, so if you like the bling – the 200km medal is available if you finish and complete the little yellow card.
This route has some gravel, about 40km. If the council grader has not been over it then you can get away with a road bike running 28mm tires, otherwise the maxim of wider the better applies.
Remember: It is your responsibility to ensure you are visible at night or during low light conditions. Please be familiar with Kiwi Randonneurs Night Riding rules.
Please note: Some RideWithGPS features for generating cue sheets and Garmin Direct write are only available if you join the Kiwi Randonneurs RideWithGPS Club, which gives you access to paid features for Kiwi Randonneurs rides.
