Ride the Wilderness

Saturday 13th November

Ride the Wilderness is a Mountain Bike Ride on the West Coast Wilderness Trail on Saturday 13th November 2021.

This event gives riders the opportunity to see the West Coast beauty and in 2021 it will give you, all it has to offer while racing the fantastic West Coast Wilderness Trail. This is a Grade 2 ride and has everything from lakes, rivers, creeks, board walks, single tracks, historic bridges, forestry, wetlands, reservoirs, water races you name it - it’s all here, it is truly an awesome ride and a great opportunity to race it. 

Ride the Wilderness will have four magnificent events all in one day:

Ross to Greymouth "The Epic"

Hokitika to Greymouth "The Challenge"

Cowboy Paradise to Greymouth "The Classic"

Kumara to Greymouth "The Cruise"



Start Time


Four Great Rides, do as an individual from all four locations or a Team of 2 from Cowboy Paradise or Ross, or a Team of 4 or 2 from Ross. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re an Elite, or first time rider - there is a challenge here for you.  First timer racers, we recommend the Kumara to Greymouth ride.

In the inaugural race in 2017, the winning time from Ross to Greymouth was 4 hours 12 minutes in a 3 way sprint finish an amazing effort.

All the finishes will be in Greymouth behind the Airport on the West Coast Wllderness Trail.
