A self-supported bikepacking challenge. Connect the six rideable corners of Golden Bay in 36 hours, Takaka to Takaka.
The six corners are: Farewell Spit Cafe, Brown Hut (start of Heaphy), Anatori Rv campsite, Totaranui Beach, Rameka Track start, Canaan Downs, Trilobite Hut (Cobb). Each of these are awesome places and iconic NZ landscapes, all worthy of a visit in their own right.
No entry fees, no prizes, no tracking. You can do the "corners" in any order, but you must finish in the time limit. A star for every corner, lose a star for every hour you are late back! Some corners are harder than others.......East Takaka Rd is mandatory for travel in lower Takaka Valley, keep off the highway where possible.
About 440km total, the western section is pretty flat (2000m+), the eastern section is not! (~5000m).
Start: The VIllage Green, Takaka 6am 7 April
Finish: in the Roots Bar, Commercial St, by 6 pm 8 April.
