Incorporating the local “route du jour” the two passes (Redwood pass and Taylor Pass) and additions. Starting over the Taylor Pass (with high speed gravel descent to Awatere valley) your journey ventures further south. From Seddon school we take in the wonderful scenery on Marama road followed by some high speed gravel through Waterfalls Road and onward to lunch at Lake Grassmere. Stage 3 normally has some chunky gravel (we mean large metal) leading to a sharp climb to Yealands Estate, a tour of the Yealands White road then a speedy sealed descent into Seddon. Stage 4 is a seal and gravel run home over Redwood Pass with some fun off-camber gravel bends to keep you sharp
Most suited to Gravel, Cyclocross and Mountain bikes. Brave individuals with larger volume tyres may still tackle the course on their roadie
