About the event
We would love to have your company in 2018 at the Waiouru Discoverer. The 63,000 hectare Waiouru military training area has flora, fauna and geographical features that are totally unique to the area.
All pricing is GST inclusive. Adult: $40. Junior (15-years or under): $15. Family (one or two adults and up to two children 15-years or under living at same address): $90.
We have a range of routes from a small kids section up to the experts at 70km. Details on final routes will be finalised at Labour Weekend and posted on the website. Suffice to say, we are riding at altitude, the terrain is stunning and the tracks have a mix of all terrains. We will provide detailed information on grades and lengths of options for you. The trails will be marshalled and we will have recovery units on the trails for those who may need assistance. Our marshals will have continuous radio contact with ride control and other marshals as well as comprehensive first aid coverage. This is a fun ride. It is not organised as a race but of course you may travel at whatever speed you feel comfortable with. All we ask you to do is be courteous and respect other riders. There are no prizes as such other than the breath taking panorama and the brilliant company of your fellow mountain bikers.
