Course Description

From the start at the Clevedon Show-Grounds the route continues along Monument Road and a steady climb to Skyhigh Rd where you go down to John Hill Rd and left in Hunua Rd and on into the small settlement of Hunua, a mainly flat road goes through the Hunua valley with rolling pastoral hills on one side and the bush covered Hunua Ranges opposite. This is the main water catchment area for greater Auckland with many dams in the hills. The turnaround point for the 45KM ride and first drink station is on this stretch of the course. Continue along into Happy Valley and come out on to old State Highway 2 at Mangatawhiri. Soon after the route veers off to the left towards Mangatangi and through rolling farm land before descending down to the coast where a good view can be had of the Firth of Thames and the distant Coromandel ranges.

At Kaiaua you have reached the ½ way point where you will find the second drink station.  Toilet facilities are nearby at the boat ramp car park.  The ride now follows the coast for about 20kms, large mussel farms can be seen in the distance. After a climb and drop down to the Orere Point turn off, you go left. There is a Drink station here, should you need it, before another climb through picturesque bush before a fast downhill run into Kawakawa Bay, after skirting the bay it is inland along the Kawakawa Bay Rd through gently rolling country and left into McNicoland right into Tourist and Monument Rd to the finish back at the Show-grounds.
