Saturday 4 November 2017 will once again see two 1,000km Cruise rides on the same day – the 1KCs. One will start and finish in Wellington, the second will start and finish in Hamilton. The routes for each will be different, with briefing, instructions and checkpoint information sent to registered riders one week prior to the event.
