Plan your journey

The Rimutaka Cycle Trail is right on Wellington's doorstep and when it comes to bike holidays, the Wellington region really has all the goods for a good time.

The Rimutaka Cycle Trail traverses Wellington, the Hutt Valley and Wairarapa, so you're able to explore the whole region on two wheels.  As well as the trail you'll find approximately 350km of mountain biking, cross country and vineyard trails and the best news is that you're never too far from a brunch spot or a craft brew.  From hardcore rides for dedicated mud hounds, to fun cruises through the vines, there's something for everyone.
