About The Event...

The Coast Road Cycle Challenge is broken into 2 sections, the full 100km ride starts in Westport. Riders make their way south out of Westport along the northern section of the Great Coast Road. The first section is 55km to the half-way point at one of New Zealand’s national treasures, The Pancake Rocks and Blowholes at Punakaiki . The Punakaiki transition allows teams to change over along with the start of the journey for riders in the half ride, Punakaiki Express, 45km to Greymouth.

The final leg follows, what can only be described as breathtaking views, along the rocky cliff-edged Great Coast Road through to the official finish line in Greymouth near the world famous The Monteith's Brewery, and a cold beer waits. Course map below...
