Born out of the pandemic, The Tour Te Waipounamu is the newest, and arguably the toughest bikepacking event on the New Zealand Calendar.
Race founder, Brian Alder, has put together a backcountry route that incorporates many private stations, otherwise inaccessible to the public, as well as navigating a mixture of historic walking tracks and paths.
South - The Tour Te Waipounamu Story by Kiwi Director Rob Dawson explores what bikepacking is, and what it means to those who ride the TTW, a 1300+ km race from the northernmost point of New Zealand's South Island, Cape Farewell in Golden Bay, to the southernmost tip of the South Island at Slope Point.
This gritty little film shows a behind-the-scenes look at one of the gnarliest bike adventures New Zealand has to offer.
Feel like riding to the Cinema?? Perfect, they'll have a bike valet service and security to look after your bike while you enjoy the movie.
So...listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets, grab your bike and head along for the ride!!
