North Island 1,600 & 800 rides set for 2017!
6-8 October 2017
Yes, the much-awaited 2017 Distance Riding Season will kick off again in Turangi this spring.
This year will be our fourth 1,600km ride and, following the success of last year's inaugural 800km event, our second one of those.
Keeping true to our tradition of "Surprise", the routes won't be named until the Friday evening prior to the starts on the Saturday immediately following.
Entry forms are up ready for your completion and the provision of the necessary entry fees.
