‘A race that challenges you physically, technically and mentally with its climbs, descents and length, the K2 is a true test and one of a kind in NZ. The event also has a very relaxed and welcoming nature which encompasses all that is kiwi, always a highlight on my calendar.’
As a former participant, and having taken part in hundreds of similar events around NZ and around the world, I am a huge supporter of the K2 event. Not only is it a stunning destination and a fantastic excuse to stick around the Coromandel for the weekend, the course is spectacular and a real iconic event on the calendar for thousands of recreational and professional cyclists
The K2 lives up to it’s reputation as being the toughest one day race in the Southern Hemisphere, but it’s simply the most rewarding. 200km you will ever travel. Thanks for the ARC Team for making the K2 possible.
