The Tasman Explorer Cycle Tour - for experienced cyclists seeking a civilised adventure
You’re fit (ish), comfortable on a bike, and ready for an adventure. But, you like a glass of wine, a hot bath and a gourmet meal at the end of the day.
The Great Taste Trail and the Tasman area for experienced cyclists
You are comfortable on a bike, and regularly get out on your wheels. You are happy with longer distance rides, as long as there is a cold beverage at the end. And, you want to explore the incredible landscape, food and drink that Mapua, Nelson and the Tasman areas have to offer.
If this is you, our Tasman Explorer options are your perfect holiday.
We use the Great Taste Trail as well as local cycle routes, and using our local knowledge, can help you plan an epic adventure. We have a feast of routes that give you 200-300km of ground to cover and let you do it all independently.
We are keen local cyclists, and believe some of the best cycling routes are on the back roads, off the main trails. We give you the building blocks (route ideas and accommodation options) to build your own tour. We provide the basic logistics to make it work. You won’t get the degree of itinerary organisation or booking services that are included in our other tours, but we offer advice and provide information for you to be able to plan your cycle tour.
We meet you at your chosen start point and get you set up with your hire bikes before you cycle off on your adventure. You will have the full support of the Wheelie team, should you need to contact us or need any assistance during your tour.
