These categories are the same as Around Brunner so we have the same categories for the Mini Series.

Clydesdale and Clydesdalesses

One for the big guys and girls, males over 100kg and females over 75kg (without the bike) and will be weighed after the race so you have to be a solid 100kg or 75kgs. If we need to weigh you we will. When entering just enter the Clydesdale section, no Team Section for Clydesdale and Clydesdalesses.

There are no age group categories just Male and Female, entry fee for the Ride the Rakaia Recreational Ride is $49.00
