Chateau to Plateau

Event CategoryEvent Type
Road - Social Adventure Ride


When: Sunday, 28th January 2018
Where: Chateau Tongariro Mt Ruapehu
District: Egmont National Park
Terrain: The Ride this year will revert to our original route turning left onto River road across the bridge at Taumarunui. Having gone through Ohura for the last two runs we thought we should revert back to the original for those riders for whom it may be their first time. After all variety the spice of life! Departing from The Chateau Tongariro we travel through Taumarunui and onto SH 43 the “Forgotten World Highway” to Mt Egmont/Taranaki via Whangamomona and Stratford. Following the rides terminal point at the Stratford Plateau half way up the mountain, the day ends at the War Memorial Centre at Stratford for prize giving and refreshments. The Forgotten World Highway SH 43 is a riders dream road with hills and valleys in abundance and corners that you dream of in one of NZ's most magnificent back country scenic environs. Lunch stop is at the legendary declared Republic village of Whangamomona.
