Sports Coaching Solutions Team complete the Graperide - 10 April 2009
This 101k bike ride is a circuit through some of the most stunning scenery New Zealand has to offer. It was another great day out in 2009 with a full house of 2500 Graperiders.
From Renwick, capital of the New Zealand wine industry, it's a flat route to Blenheim. Riders then head north and climb into Picton, the route follows the picturesque Queen Charlotte Drive around the head of Queen Charlotte and Pelorus Sounds, literally a ride through nature's photo album. The stunning scenery of Ngakuta and Momorangi Bays passes as the ride winds and twists to The Grove.
A flat ride to Linkwater leads onto Mahakipawa hill and more breathtaking scenery, followed by a descent to the outskirts of the mussel capital, Havelock. Then homeward bound across gently rolling terrain back home to Renwick.
Congratulations to this year's team, who have all signed up again for next year already!
