Stage 3

Cookie Time

A long bike ride that will take teams from Castle Hill to the pristine shores of Lake Clearwater in the Hakatere Conservation Park. First off a fast bit of riding past Lake Lyndon, towards Lake Coleridge and over the Rakaia River (eyeballing the paddle section coming later in the race). Then north to the start of the ascent, which will see teams climb up the tracks alongside Redcliffe Stream all the way through to Cookies Hut. There is no track in places and teams will have to pick their route carefully. A short hike-a-bike will take teams to a great viewing point of the Alford Range and then some sweet descents out toward Alford Forest and Staveley. From here, teams will head up the Ashburton Gorge to Lake Clearwater.
