The Karapoti Classic
The Southern Hemisphere's longest running mountain bike event!
Based in Wellington's rugged Akatarawa Ranges, 10k north of Upper Hutt City, the Bike Barn Karapoti Classic is New Zealand's premier mountain bike event.
This old-school adventure ride combines a huge but achievable challenge with superb scenery and an awesome social scene.
With options ranging from the feature 50k Classic to the 20k Challenge and the Kids' 5k Klassic, there's something for everyone.
Established in 1986, this is NZ's original mountain bike race and the one race on every mountain biker's wish list.
