Arapuke Classic

The Arapuke Classic is organised by the Manawatu Mountain Bike Club and takes riders over their choice of 3 courses, from 13 to 35 km of singletrack, in the foothills of the stunning Tararua Range on the doorstep of Palmerston North. The courses are predominantly purpose built singletrack with some epic downhill trails to make the most of the elevation gain.

This year we are including E Bikes in all 3 courses, for those that need a little help getting up the hills, or want to save their energy for the downhills.

Steve’s Wholefoods is once again on board to help you refuel on the best post race food for any event in New Zealand.
