One of the newest bike rides in New Zealand will get you up close with this taonga – the Te Awa Great New Zealand River Ride stretches from Ngāruawāhia to Lake Karāpiro.
The 65km trail is expected to fully open in the second half of this year, but most of the track has been completed, offering some spectacular day trips that you can do now.
And best of all, this cycleway is perfect for families and beginners. It’s grade 2, meaning it’s mostly flat with gentle climbs. An e-bike can help if you’re doing big distances, but isn’t essential.
