Looking for something to do with the family this summer? Huri Huri: Wairarapa’s Bike Festival has teamed up with the region’s only daily newspaper to create the Wairarapa Times-Age Huri Huri Treasure Hunt.
The hunt is on to find answers to clues which can be found across five of Wairarapa’s most popular cycle trails: Rimutaka Rail Trail, Greytown - Woodside Trail, Masterton Recreation Trail, Martinborough Town Trail and Carterton Mountain Bike Park.
Families have an opportunity to tackle a cycle trail each weekend throughout the month of January and hunt for the answers to the clues which feature in the newspaper.
Participants are encouraged to look out for the treasure hunt adverts and complete as many trails as they can. All completed answers will go into the draw to win some great prizes including a brand new Avanti Shadow bike and Huri Huri Goodie bags! The bike has been donated by the Wairarapa Building Society and Avant-Plus Masterton.
To pick up a copy of the treasure hunt clues, visit Wairarapa Times-Age, Avanti-Plus Masterton and Green Jersey Tours in Martinborough.
The Huri Huri Bike Festival runs from 20-25 January in association with the New Zealand Cycle Classic, an international men’s cycling race featuring the world’s premier cyclists which is being raced soley on Wairarapa roads.
Huri Huri also features the Ruamahanga Trail Ride along the banks of the Ruamahanga River to Lake Ferry, Pedal for Parkinson’s road cycle challenge up Admiral Hill in Gladstone, Blackwell and Son’s Very Posh Pashley Picnic in Greytown, the Town to Tide multisport race from Masterton to Riversdale, a kids mini criterium along the final stretch of the New Zealand Cycle Classic race and the one-off Atiwhakatu Trailblazer mountain bike fun ride.
