Location: Memorial Park, Palmerston North
Date: Saturday, 22 March 2014
Our very own The Country Road Manawatu Cycle Classic is an amazing experience, displaying all of the Manawatu’s scenic delights, from stunning views of river valleys clothed in vibrant rural farmland, through to native bush hugging the foothills of the majestic Ruahine Ranges.
The route features a rising 90km of gentle incline before dropping 600m, then charging over 40km of roller coasters, before levelling off and rolling over the last flat 30km home stretch to Palmerston North City.
The start and finish will be outside Memorial Park on Main Street. Riders will be encouraged to continue cycling to The Square for after-race entertainment and a prize giving set amongst the vibrancy and colour of the Festival of Cultures, which runs throughout the day.
This cycle event caters for all levels of cyclists and there are several options to choose from: solo, two or four person relay, and the 4-6 person team challenge (160kms together). For more information and to register online seewww.thecountryroad.co.nz.
