    Second Annual NZ Tiger 800 Mini Meet

    Greetings to all Tiger 800 owners.

    Labour Weekend is fast approaching which means it’s time for me to pull my finger out and let you know the details for this year’s Mini Meet.

    This year’s route starts and finishes at Picton on Thursday the 24th of Oct through to Labour Day Monday (27th). The route takes in as much gravel as practical including the Rainbow and Molesworth roads and heads as far South as Christchurch.

    Accommodation will be on a share twin basis at moderately priced motels.

    Here is the break down of the route;

    Thur 23rd AM Picton to Nelson via Queen Charlotte Dr, French Pass. 4:30hrs travel time, 225km distance traveled.
    PM Nelson to St Arnaud via Brightwater, Wairoa Gorge, Wakefield, Pigeon Valley, Dovedale, Tadmor Valley, Slippery Creek, Kaka, Glenhope, Buller River. 3:20hrs travel time, 183km distance traveled.

    Fri 24th AM St Arnaud to Hanmer Springs via the St James Range/Rainbow Rd. 3:30hrs travel time, 122km distance traveled.
    PM Hanmer Springs to Moana (Lake Brunner) via The Lewis Pass, Reefton, Totara Flat, Nelson Creek. 5hrs travel time, 222km distance traveled.

    Sat 25th AM Moana to Arthurs Pass via Greymouth. 2:20hrs travel time, 146km distance Traveled.
    PM Arthurs Pass to Christchurch via Cass, Lake Lyndon, Lake Coleridge 4hrs travel time, 180km distance traveled.

    Sun 26th AM Christchurch to Hanmer Springs via Rangiora, Broomfield, Horsey Down, Hurinui, Culverden. 3hrs travel time, 161km distance traveled.
