1000Km ride

Formally known as the longest day, this ride was revised to a new format for 2015. Having been popular, we're running this format again in November 2017 (date to be confirmed). Come rain, hail or shine, riders have the option of three 'loops', and can do the circuit of their choice in either a clockwise or anticlockwise direction, joining from wherever in the circuit, at the time that best suits them, and have 24 hours to complete it. Due to the Kaikoura earthquake, and subsequent road closures, the final routes have yet to be confirmed.
