Saturday 12th September 2015

The Scooter Challenge is an endurance ride, from the sea to mountains in New Zealand’s heartland. From windswept Stirling Point in Bluff to the tourist Mecca and alpine resort of Queenstown. A journey of 220 kilometers to raise funds for the New Zealand Prostate Cancer Foundation.

The Challenge is in no way a race – it’s an awareness-raising and fundraising event for the survivors, families of those with prostate cancer and those committed to making a difference. By raising funds and awareness for the Prostate Cancer Foundation we are helping them continue their great work.

2015 is the 4th time running of the PlaceMakers Scooter Challenge; the next ride will be in 2017 (making the event bi-annual).

November (12)13th – 15th

Craig is leading the charge on organization of this year’s ride. The basic plan for this “North of the South” ride is as below, finer details are still to be worked out. Keep an eye out here for more details as they come together:
Day 1, Friday 13th ( what could possibly go wrong): Start at Kaikoura, e.g; those from Chch travel up the night before or early in the morning, (some may even take the Thursday off work as well and make a day of it). Those from North Island can meet us there – or in Blenheim.

End point for the day is probably Havelock via Blenheim, Port Underwood, Picton and Queen Charlotte Drive. There are sealed options for those wanting to avoid the gravel. Possibility of an evening ride out to Portage for dinner and drinks via the Kenepuru Rd out around Kenepuru sound. ( 80km round trip from Havelock)

Day 2, Saturday 14th: End point for the day is Murchison via Pelorus Bridge, Nelson, Kaiteriteri, Tapawera, Glenhope to Murchison.

Day 3, Sunday 15th: North Island Folk head home via Nelson Lakes to Blenheim etc. Christchurch people head home via some shingle roads, etc.
