DETAILS

TWIN COAST CYCLE TRAIL
The Twin Coast Cycle Trail is an 87km trail of wide well maintained & dedicated cycle path (some small sections are shared use on rural roads, watch for vehicles). The entire trail is an easy to moderate grade which can be ridden in a variety of ways; all at once, different sections at a time or in either direction.

The preferred direction for those cycling the full length is to start the trial from Opua, finishing in Horeke. Some cycle both ways and others choose to stay in Kaikohe or Okaihau as these are the central (and highest) points on the trail. From here they cycle to each coast, returning to the centre point and head to the opposite coast on day two.

Another popular option is to organize day (or multi-day) rides of various length using local shuttle operators listed here on Leap! Shuttles can be organised for all types of Twin Coast Trail trips!

WAITANGI MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK
Discover a network of trails suitable for all levels and ages in sunny Northland, just 5km from Paihia. The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park is a new community built project, supported and funded by the local community around it. With 5 zones now open for riding, 40km of finished and 30km more of planned trails all of Grade 2 and 3 levels and located only 4.5km from Paihia the park is super accessible and close.

Registration to ride the park is encouraged with all funds going back to help maintain and continue to build in the bike park. A day pass at $10 or year access for $25 are the going rates and can be purchased from the following local compaines: Paihia iSITE; Fullers Great Sights; Paihia Mountain Bike Rentals, Bay of Islands Information, Waitangi Holiday Park or Hunter Cycles in Kerikeri.

Bike hire and shuttles to the park are best organised from Paihia. Booking in advance is essential as the summer season see's many visitors to the Bay of Islands!
