Course Alternative

Choose between North Bank and Highway 63 to Blenheim

Over the last two days several riders have chosen to ride straight down Highway 63. Those that have taken the North Bank option have mostly found it rewarding, but also challenging.

As there is an easterly headwind forecast for the next two days we have deciced to make it clear that riders can take the Highway option if they want to. The Highway is about 100 km, all sealed. The Northbank is 118 km, with lots of gravel and some hills. Northbank may simply be too much for those that are getting worn down.

If you prefer, take the highway and enjoy the last day of the Brevet.
