Mahia Coast to Coast

Ride description :
The ride will include gravel roads along the Kini kini road and forestry tracks with some steep gradients along the way. Hopefully the scenery will make this effort all worth while 🙂 Bring all your gear, bike, helmet, plenty of water and lunch. A shuttle and a trailer (for bikes) have been organised to allow our younger and or older bikers to enjoy this event. The shuttle will take the participants at the Fishing Club and will drop them off on top of the hill on the Kinikini road. The same shuttle and trailer will be available at the Whangawehi boat ramp (on the other side of the Peninsula) for those not wanting to finish the loop on the road. If you require any further information please contact Project Co-Ordinator Nic Caviale-Delzescaux on 06 838 8527. Keep an eye on whangawehi.com for last minute updates.
