This is the biggie. New Zealand's original mountain bike race and limited to 1000 riders, the 50k Classic is an uncompromising yet exhilarating and achievable 50km of 4WD trails, single track, river crossings and hills that'll have you grinding up but grinning down, and all amid spectacular wall to wall wilderness.
In short, "The Classic" has something for everyone and with a bit of training almost everyone can achieve it... Almost!
The 20k Challenge offers a taste of the Classic for off-road rookies, supporters, active families and school kids.
This easier option is every bit as stunning as the full-blooded Classic, but at only half the distance and just one big hill it's the ideal introduction to the experience that is Karapoti.
The "Karapoti Kids Klassic" is an adventurous intro to mountain biking for primary school kids aged five to 11.
The course is a safe and scenic 5k on entry level tracks, but include some fun and filthy stuff like stream crossing, lots of mud and the odd surprise along the way. Parents are welcome to ride free with their child.
