As usual, the registration and start/finish will be at the Te Horo Community Hall, School Rd, Te Horo. After graded racing, everyone is invited back to Ruth Pretty's Garden cafe for coffee, cake and results and where Ruth's Rider of the Day will be awarded.
Both Otaki Gorge Rd and School Rd (the start/finish) were resealed (fine grit) around 3 months ago, so the course is in great condition. With Transmission Gully now open, those coming from Wellington should have a smooth and quick trip up (around 40 minutes from Kelburn) to sunny Te Horo!
