A Waikari School fundraising event.

Registrations are open for the 5th annual Frog Rock mountain bike challenge on Saturday 9 November, 2013. Private landowners in the beautiful limestone hills of North Canterbury will again reopen their roads and tracks for cyclists to test their strength and stamina, all for a good cause – to raise funds for their local Waikari School.

The annual Frog Rock mountain bike ride offers cyclists with good fitness levels – from enthusiasts to seasoned Coast to Coast pros - a choice of circuits with challenges and views that will literally take your breath away. For energetic families there’s also a new kids-friendly circuit.

There are three circuits to ride: adults (age 15 and over) 15km and 20km, and a new separate track for children (ages 8-14). Each of the circuits offers exhilarating combinations of up and down hill tracks through some of North Canterbury’s finest landscapes. Set amidst stunning terrain with expansive views, cyclists will have a unique opportunity to ride through four privately owned estates - Shellrock, Mt Donald, Carvossa and Lockerbie, plus neighbouring properties.

All circuits are very rideable, but a good standard of fitness is required. The track conditions include gravel farm track, 4wd track and open tussock grassland. To help gauge the difficulty, the average finish time to complete the 20km course is around 2 hours. And the average time to complete the 15km course is around 1 1/2; hours (the guns can break 1 hour, while more sedate riders will take over 2 hours). The more gentle children’s course will take about 20 minutes to complete.

Registration details together with circuit route descriptions, terrain maps and altitude profiles can be found at www.frogrock.co.nz.
