Backroad 200 returns for another year…and this time we are taking it off-road! Providing a new challenge for 2019, Backroad 200 is hitting the hills and farm tracks to take you exploring on your MTB and into NZ’s beautiful back country through North Canterbury.
Friday 5 April: depart early morning from Christchurch in two vans and complete 40 awesome km’s across the afternoon.
Saturday 6 April: 64kms of stunning rolling countryside, with a few challenging hills to keep you honest!
Sunday 7 April: to round out the weekend, we head inland for another 50kms (or shorter if you choose) to picnic beside the beautiful Lake Sumner. Bring your togs for a refreshing dip before we load up and return to Christchurch late Sunday afternoon.
As with any Team CP event, there will be some competitive sectors and fun challenges along the way. The two vans will also be on hand for extra support and to carry gear, food and hydration, but due to the nature of the routes will not be able to follow us for the entire day.
This is not a technical ride, if you can ride Rapaki you will be fine. However, Saturday will provide a challenge and require a good level of fitness to complete it. If you would like some training guidance please contact Brett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Penelope (email@example.com).
Interest is high and numbers are limited so booking early is essential for what will be a fun and adventurous weekend to end the summer season!
