the escape

power the trails

Load up your mountain bike, passion and adventurous spirit for an event of a lifetime... the opportunity to ride the stunningly scenic Hawkes Bay region  on the South East coast of  New Zealand's North Island.

 

Spectacular trails and breathtaking views await as you roll over inspiring terrain, exploring, experiencing and soaking up all the good things in life...

 

2 wheels, cranks, hills, dales and water crossings... The Escape is here!

 

For an incredible 3.5 day stage race, we are offering the The Escape. Carefully selected trails ensure that you have every opportunity for fun and grind. A good balance between terrain and obstacles to get those legs working for the 3.5 day push to enjoy the daily massage at the end of each stage.

 

For those who prefer a little less adrenaline and more of an experience, then The Escape is right up your ally. Don't be fooled, this won't be a ride in the park and fitness will be required. But you can expect to have one of the best rides of your life!

The Escape

The Escape 3 & half day international mountain bike stage race that takes place in New Zealand’s North Island. We have ensured that The Escape, is a uniquely Kiwi event. As far as possible we have sourced nearly every service needed to organise an event of this magnitude, from within the local community.

 

We believe in supporting local and in turn this support will improve the economy of the Hawkes Bay areas. We use local volunteers and venues to ensure the race has a uniquely Kiwi “flavour”, while also using the local facilities and communities along the route.
