Type: Mostly flat with one solid 10-15 minute climb
Duration: 2.5 – 3 hrs
After a good warm up via the motor way the climb up Blue Mountains is great. Following is Whitemans Valley the scene of many a local bike race. You have options to turn off and go down Wallaceville or continue to the top of the Valley via Mangaroa or right to the end which takes you to Te Marua. Can be ridden multiple ways and is a good test of your form.
