Overview

Our most popular day trip, and you can see why. Get out on a bike and experience one of the most scenic parts of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail with Paihia Mountain Bikes. Ride along the old railway corridor on the Opua to Kawakawa section of the famous Twin Coast Cycle Trail on our high quality, and very comfy easy access, low rise bikes. Trips depart from Paihia This cycle trail is all off the main road, an easy gradient and achievable by most levels of fitness so great for all ages and abilities

What to Expect

Experience the best part of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail from Opua to Kawakawa! A scenic and family friendly adventure. Depart from Paihia in our purpose built mountain bike trailer and vans, and get dropped in the nearby Port town of Opua. Start following the old railway tracks, a flat and very scenic trail from Opua to Kawakawa, taking in the train tunnel, rail bridges and historic towns. Make sure you have your camera ready! Spend some time for lunch or a snack in historic Kawakawa, checking out the famous Huntertwasser Toilets, Vintage Railway and Steamtrain running right through the main street in town. This train operates in the weekdays and some holidays, so may be possible to add to your trip. Afterwards, retrace your tracks and follow the meandering Kawakawa River through to the seaside Opua. Time for another coffee or bite to eat before your shuttle takes you back to your accommodation or Paihia Mountain Bikes HQ in Paihia for a well deserved rest. This trail is 11km in each direction (22km return). It is is all off the main road, a very easy gradient and achievable by all levels of fitness so great for all ages and abilities

Hi there Patrick, thanks for the review mate. Long way to ride from Kaikoura- might have meant Kaikohe (for our readers out there), which is a 45km downhill ride to Opua. Glad you enjoyed it. Cheers, Jonny
