Once a year passionate mountain bikers descend upon Wānaka and Lake Hwea to test their skills, endurance and daring at the Contact Epic.

No frills, old school, no excuses, the Contact Epic takes mountain bikers on an 125km adventure to circumnavigate Lake Hāwea through usually inaccessible locations that blow the mind and challenge the spirit. If that’s too tough there are easier 95km and 35km options available.
