Rimutaka Cycle Trail

Rimutaka Cycle Trail

Being one of New Zealand great rides, the Rimutaka Cycle Trail is a great option for a weekend getaway just right outside of Wellington. The official trail starts from Petone but we took the train to Lower Hutt and skip the first bit. In exchange we finished the ride in Eastbourne instead of finishing at the Orongorongo Station.
