The Big Daddy, is just that, a combination of Wellingtons best, forming a great ride for everyone.  

After heading out around the Harbour, and up the Eastern Hutt road, the course takes you up into the Blue Mountains, and the picturesque Whitemans Valley.  

Following that we head into the Akatarawas for some serious climbing.  The ride returns down State Highway 2 which typically is a tail wind and makes for some great bunch riding practise.  

Don't forget to call out rocks and things on the road, as the motorway has claimed many a victim to road rash.
