6HR Midwinter Breakout

Get a team of 2, 3 or 4 riders together and join the hundreds of riders who take part in Nelson's biggest bike race every year. Everyone has a blast, from novices, corporate teams and schools through to the fast racers in search of glory.

Feedback from the 350+ people that entered the 2015 event was fantastic - seems like everyone loved the flat(ish) but still a little bit technical course that weaved through the pine forest and along the sea front. Even after weeks of torrential rain it was in near perfect condition. So - we've taken that info and made this year's course similar, but way better. Riders of all ages, abilities and fitness levels are going to love it.
