Back road adventure day rides

Enjoy sections of The Great Taste Trail and quiet country back roads, to find that road less travelled. Allow us to take you to places most people don’t know exist.

Experience the tranquility of the countryside, hop gardens, orchards, majestic rivers, with a stunning backdrop of Kahurangi National Park. Many of our routes also pass artisans’ studios and galleries. All this and yet never too far away from a coffee stop!

This is an ideal day ride if you enjoy more challenging rides and the cycling is more important than the stops.
