Explore the flagship trail of the Rimutaka Cycle Trail by mountain bike and discover the rich rail history and natural beauty of the Rimutaka Ranges.

You will be collected from your nominated Wellington address in the morning and shuttled to either Maymorn (for a 25km, slightly more challenging ride) or Kaitoke (for an 18km easy ride). You’ll be fitted with a mountain bike and helmet, adjust to your height and riding preferences.

Start your adventure with a very gradual incline through native bush. Pass through tunnels (headlights provided!) and over bridges, while checking out the information boards which tell the story of the enormous task constructing the old fell railway system.

Reach the summit of the trail - a large grassy plateau perfect for a picnic and drink from your provided lunch - then enjoy a fun and easy descent to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, surrounded by some of NZ's most scenic farmland.

You can either wait for the shuttle home at Cross Creek, or continue biking down toward Ocean Beach, and be picked up along the way before heading back to Wellington.
