This annual cycle race starts in the middle of Christchurch at 7.30am for the pre-race briefing and then it's all go at 8.00am. The finish line is in the centre of Akaroa, followed by prize giving on the Akaroa recreation ground. Make a weekend of it by booking into 1 of the many wonderful B&B's in Akaroa and enjoy a family weekend away. Be warned! This is not your ordinary 100 km race. Hugely popular across all abilities, amazing views and more hills than you can shake a pump at.
