Stage Brief

Leaving at 7:00 am from our Christchurch hotel, we will be driving to Mouse Point (13km north of Culverden) for an expected start time of 9:30 am. The inland route through to Kaikoura is a true backcountry experience, and previous riders say the best day on the Tour they have ridden. Just sheep, little traffic, no fences and one-way bridge. This area that was severely damaged by the earthquakes will welcome us all as we quietly pedal to arrive in Kaikoura for a late lunch in one of the many cafes. We then drive through to Blenheim (1 hr 30 min) for our night’s rest.
