One Great Ride

The first legs of the 3km New Zealand Cycle Trail have been opened between Ruapehu and Whanganui. This 242km section of the trail will take four to six days to ride, with varying levels of difficulty. The opening is a major milestone on the much larger New Zealand Cycle Trail project, which aims to link existing ‘Great Rides’ up and down the country to create one continuous route. Fifty million dollars has already been invested in the scheme. Cyclists eyeing up New Zealand as a travel destination can expect the national cycle trail to be completed by the end of 211.
