Kaiwara Classic MTB Race

Sunday, 7 April 2019

Culverden to Cheviot

Cancelled Bike MTB/Cross Country

The Kaiwara Classic MTB Race on Sunday, 7 April 2019 is an adventure mountain bike ride from Culverden to Cheviot in North Canterbury.

This event was cancelled due to heavy rain and safety concerns for competitors and the marshalling team.

The race starts outside of Culverden and heads over the Lowry Peaks Range through the Ethelton Valley up the Random Spur before the final fast 4wd track descent to the finish in Cheviot.

There are 2 course options, with fitter riders able to opt for the "Epic" course, which continues climbing approximately 1km beyond the Kaiwara Saddle to traverse the tops before rejoining the existing course at Sod Hut corner further down the Ethelton Valley. Whilst only 2km longer than the traditional "Challenge" course, the additional climbs are steep and the track much rougher - but the views are fantastic.

The event is run by the Cheviot Lions Club with proceeds from the event being used to fund community projects in the Cheviot area.
