2 DAY -Ultimate Coast to Coast - Standard Bike
- Duration: 2 Days (approx.)
- Location: Kaikohe, Northland
- Product code: CTC
A total of 87 kms from the Bay of Islands in the east to the Hokianga harbour on the west coast.
Moderate fitness needed as the section from Okaihau to Maungunu Mission is a grade 3 trail but the rest is grade 1-2
It follows both historic rail and walking pathways through estuary, bush, towns and rural settings and includes a boardwalk over wetlands.
Arrive in Kaikohe both mornings to start your cycle and you will be picked up at 3 pm each day by shuttle and returned to Kaikohe - one day from the Eastern side and the other day from Horeke / Mangungu
We recommend cycling the trail this way as Kaikohe, in the centre of the track, is the highest point and so the majority of your cycle is downhill
Meet at our base 39 Rankin Street Kaikohe to pick up your bike 9-10 am. Let us know on the first morning whether you will be bringing your bike back to the depot overnight or keeping it with you in a secure place.
The trail on the Eastern side between Taumarere to Opua is temporarily closed - pick up is at 3pm at Te Hononga Centre in Kawakawa - You can cycle on from Kawakawa to Taumarere station 3 kms and return
