After more than 10 years of tripping the Wild Coast coastline, Glen Haw and Steve Stamp had mixed feelings about being coerced into creating a structured event along the route. Their love of the region was in strong conflict with their competitive instincts. The resulting compromise was the creation of the IMANA Wild Ride - a fantastic end result for all those taking part.
