With a group of friends we tackled the 2 day cycle across to top of the North Island. We chose Opua to Horeke which proved to be the better way and not quite so hilly. You will need a certain fitness level and a good...More

Best way to do this ride is Opua to Horeke, unless you want a 1.5 km steep incline up a ravine! Cycled 45 kms from Opua to Kaikohe first day which is a gradual climb. Kaikohe to Horeke on the 2nd day, about 40 kms...More

The whole trail has only recently been completed. The easiest way to do this is to start in Kaikohe and then either cycling west to Horeke on the west coast or east to Opua on the east coast. Kaikohe is the highest point contour wise...More

Yes it would be ok but you would have to be careful on the downhill which is a series of switchbacks. The track is wide enough. The only other area to watch is you need to use the road before the boardwalk into Horeke
