Heartland Tour – Wild West Coast <14/04/2022>

We are off to the Wild West Coast of the South Island!

14-24 April 2022

This would suit experienced cyclists, happy to ride all day for several days. There will be a wide variation of terrain so a Hardtail Mountain Bike or Gravel Bike with grippy tyres and a wide range of gears would be best.

You don’t need to carry the Kitchen Sink as we will have the Queen of Support helping us each and every day.

But it’s not just about the cycling, we will bombard your senses and tastes with historical and cultural visits as well as sampling the best of what the region has to offer.

Don’t miss out, book your space now.
