Take on the very best of the Rimutaka Cycle Trail for a day of challenging yet rewarding mountain biking.

You’ll be collected from your Wellington doorstep, then shuttled to Kaitoke. You’ll be fitted with your bike and helmet, customised to your height and riding preferences.

Jump in the saddle and start your adventure with a very gradual incline through native bush. You’ll pass through tunnels from the old rail trail (headlights provided!) and over bridges, all while learning about the enormous task of constructing this old fell railway system.

Reach the summit of the include - a large grassy plateau perfect for a picnic or cold drink - then enjoy a fun and leisurely descent to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, surrounded by some of NZ's most scenic farmland.

You’ll then be shuttled down to Ocean Beach in the Wairarapa (even the drive has beautiful scenery!) where you’ll jump back on your bike and head around the coast to Orongorongo on the Wild Coast trail. The locals here have seen orca, dolphins and seals from the trail - it's an absolutely incredible part of the country.

Please note that although the Wild Coast trail is one of the highlights of the Rimutaka Cycle Trail, it is quite rugged and not for all riders.
