Ride the Great Taste Trail
Easy-to-ride (Grade 1 and 2 – similar to the Otago Central Rail trail), the trail caters for a wide range of cyclists and walkers. Blue markers and signs with cycle logo on them identify the trail route, and interpretive signs are located along the way.
When complete, the whole trail – including a section in the Motueka River Valley – will cover a distance of 175km and will run from Nelson, to Richmond, Brightwater, Wakefield out to Tapawera, along the Motueka River Valley to Riwaka, Kaiteriteri, and then back to Richmond through Motueka and Mapua.
As stages of the trail are completed there will be the choice of day rides or a series of overnight stops.
