Dozens of cyclists will tear through coastal Taranaki farmland in the quest for glory this weekend.
More than 140 competitors are expected to line up at the top of Opunake's Arawhata Rd to tackle the increasingly popular Mountain to Sea cross-country bike ride on Sunday.
Now in its fifth year, the Opunake Lions Club fundraiser offers riders a chance to travel terrain not otherwise open to the public.
