  • Global Ranking

This is the highest public road in New Zealand. It is a very scenic but tough ride with 2 large hills. It has 26 or so river crossings. The road itself is not technical but the distance and climbs make it not for inexperienced riders.
Once a year the Pub to Pub Gutbuster Race is held on this road at the end of November. It runs from Garston to Bannockburn and buses are laid on to take you from the finish to the start, making it easier to complete.
