Around Brunner is a 130-km sealed circuit cycle ride which takes cyclists through some of the most stunning scenery the West Coast of New Zealand has to offer.
Starting from Greymouth, cyclists ride along the edge of the Tasman Sea, then turn inland at the Kumara Junction. The ride climbs gently through scenic rainforest passing Jackson’s Retreat Alpine Holiday Park’s front door and turning off to Inchbonnie, the half-way point and stage teams changeover.
Cyclists then turn north for a breathtaking flat ride through the stunning scenery of Lake Poerua, Rotomanu and Moana, which are nestled between the spectacular Southern Alps and tranquil Lake Brunner. Climbing out of Moana, cyclists follow an undulating and winding course through the picturesque Arnold Valley to Stillwater. A flat ride beside the banks of the Grey River takes cyclists back to Greymouth.
The Around Brunner Cycle Ride is generally held in the third weekend in April. You can find out more information at the Around Brunner website.
Jackson’s Holiday Park is again a fantastic base for Around Brunner supporters and participants.
