The Slicks and Stones 100 event is for the hard-core sport and weekend rider who wants to experience the same arduous route as the professional riders. By no means is the ride less strenuous, it's just 100km - a little shorter than the 130km Classic (but includes the same five gravel sections comprising 40kms).
Slicks and Stones is an event that provides the opportunity for junior, masters, and "weekend warrior" riders, both male and female, to experience the undulating roads and gravel sectors the beautiful Manawatu countryside has to offer. It starts in Feilding and finishes in Palmerston North.
Make a commitment, start training and reach your goal of riding the Slicks and Stones 100 on 25th January 2020.
