Enjoy a relaxing journey through some of New Zealand’s earliest settlements on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail, or Pou Herenga Tai.
The trail is generally flat and wide with a smooth surface and only gentle climbs. It includes off-road and on-road riding.
The off-road section is built on an old rail corridor, making it suitable for riders of all ages, abilities and fitness levels.
The trail traverses rural farm country and takes the rider through a number of small towns and past many sites of historical and cultural significance.
Look out for the hand-carved pou (statues) along the route. These reflect the rich culture of this region and provide an artistic feature to the trail.
Some sections of the trail are open while others are still under planning and construction. It’s anticipated that the entire 84km trail, from Opua to Horeke, will be completed in summer 2016.
