Stage Two - Hydro heat

Thursday 24  January 2019

Cambridge – Roto O Rangi – Pukeatua – Lake Karapiro

Competitors will ride the path of hydro-energy in Waipā. Take in the rolling farmlands of Roto-o-rangi, a peat bog that was drained for farmland when European settlers arrived, before hitting the mighty Waikato River. Why not watch from one of Waipā’s recreation areas as riders make their way from Lake Arapuni, past Horahora and finish at the last hydro installation at Lake Karāpiro – home to a wealth of both European and Māori history.
