The Tasman Explorer Cycle Tour - for experienced cyclists seeking a civilised adventure
You’re a keen cyclist and would like to explore some gravel routes. You are ready for an adventure and you like a cold beer, a hot shower and a good meal at the end of the day.
The Great Taste Trail and Tasman Gravel
Would you like to explore some lesser travelled gravel routes? We can help you enjoy gravel rides combined with The Great Taste Trail if you are a regular cyclist with a sense of adventure. Are you wanting 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 cycling 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 with as much or as little support from us as you would like.
We are keen local cyclists, and believe some of the best cycling routes are on the back roads, off the main trails.
If you are the type of cyclist who likes to plan most of your trip, we can give you the building blocks (route ideas and accommodation options) to build your own tour. We provide the basic logistics to make it work. If on the other hand you want to take advantage of all of our usual tour-planning services, just want to turn up and know that we have everything organised for your tour; we can do that too.
For those of you who can’t bear to leave your favourite bike at home, we are happy to offer all of our tours without bike hire.
We meet you at your start point and get you set up with your hire bikes ( if needed), route notes etc, 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.
