Riverton to Tuatapere

Riverton

The Southland region boast some great rolling roads with little traffic. Each year, this region is home to New Zealand’s longest-running multi-day bike race – the Tour of Southland. The section of road described here features regularly in the Tour, usually as part of a longer stage. Whilst offering no real climbs, this ride is where you can get a small taste of the wind know as the roaring forties – it could be the fastest or slowest 50km you’ve ever ridden.
