4 DAY TRAVERSE Overview


Event Summary

In 2016 as part of The Pioneer event we offered the 3 Day Traverse. For 2017 this has been enhanced to the 4 Day Traverse.

The 4 Day Traverse is a solo event and incorporates everything that is great about The Pioneer, but is more achievable for those without the time to train for and participate over 7 days of stage racing. 

2017 sees Traverse riders begin their 4-day journey in Christchurch, alongside the 7-day Epic riders, and complete their ride in Lake Ohau at the end of Stage Four. 

Although a shortened version, the Traverse will still prove to be mentally and physically demanding with 8,718m of climbing across the 314kms of riding.

Traverse riders will experience a unique journey through the stunning Southern Alps, with inspiring views across breath-taking countryside, which very few will ever get to experience. They will share a true life time experience with other riders and enjoy a level of camaraderie like no other – we don’t exaggerate when we say life-long friends are made on this journey.

If you are looking for that step-up from one day MTB events, then the 4 Day Traverse will inspire you to take that step, and ride beyond!
