The longest and most scenic mountain bike race in New Zealand, the Contact Epic is aptly named indeed!
Once a year passionate mountain bikers descend upon Wanaka and Lake Hawea 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 Hawea 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.
