The Slicks and Stones 100 is for the hard-core sport and weekend cyclist.
With four gravel sections it’s a great way to experience the same arduous route and the event ambience as the professional riders in the Gravel and Tar UCI races!
By no means is the Slicks and Stones less strenuous, it’s just a little shorter than the UCI races. It provides the opportunity for junior, masters, and “weekend warrior” riders to ride the undulating roads and gravel sectors that the elite riders will race on. At the same time they can experience the beautiful Manawatu countryside and take on a unique cycling challenge.
Palmerston North City Council will host the finish line event down at Memorial Park. There will be live music, awesome competitions, food trucks, bouncy castles, face painting and more. Free entry, the more the merrier, bring everyone down to this family-friendly event.
