The next TT2000 takes place Feb 23rd - 25th 2018.  The aim is to cover 2000km in 48hrs and also earn a certain number of 'points' by going to various checkpoints, here's the route we've planned - but this could well change when Trev gets ahold of it! This year there are checkpoints all over the North & South Islands so plenty of scope to plan a route that suits.

So here's the route we plan to use - starting in Christchurch before heading north towards Kaikoura then Hanmer Springs and on to the West Coast for a few hours sleep.  Early the next day it's south down the coast road, over the Haast Pass into Wanaka, we'll miss out Queenstown instead dipping south for a checkpoint in the Caitlins, after that its beaut run north turning off to the west and heading back to Christchurch via Tekapo.  The second night will be a few hours sleep around Duntroon or maybe a little further north if we're lucky.  And if it rains what the heck, your skin is waterproof...
