Te Waitere Classic

The Te Waitere Classic is a Mountain Bike ride organised as a fundraising event to support the Te Waitere boat club, an important part of our community.

The event has two course distances, providing exclusive access over private farmland. Every finisher receives an attractive medal specially designed to represent our unique area.  Both courses have been designed to encourage mountain bike enthusiasts and leisure riders keen to discover our slice of the west coast

Event Date: April 11th 2020


17km distance takes in breathtaking views of Mt. Karioi, Mt. Pirongia, Waitetuna Wind Turbines and the inlets of Kawhia Harbour.

The 'Taumata'

48km distance incorporates the best of the 17km course with the addition of views to Mt. Taranaki and west coast ridge-lines.


Steeped in ancient history, this historic eco-wonderland is the spiritual and ancestral home of the Maori tribe, Tainui. Cultural heritage seekers world wide are slowly discovering this rare eco-gem where you can still walk for miles on an isolated ocean beach without seeing another footprint in the sand.


Breathtaking views of Mt. Karioi, Mt. Pirongia, Waitetuna Wind Turbines, Mt. Taranaki, west coast ridge-lines, and the inlets of Kawhia Harbour. Access to private farmland not normally open to the public. A varied and interesting terrain.
