Te Awa is a free, accessible walk/cycleway that has an overarching positioning of lushness, water, rural green landscape & pockets of native bush. When complete, the Great NZ River Ride will travel 70 kms along the shoreline of New Zealand’s largest...more
Very scenic, enjoyable 20km mostly following along beside the mighty Waikato River. We started in the Ngaruawahia Domain and followed the new Te Awa Cycleway all the way into downtown Hamilton. Highlights included crossing the newly opened Perry pedestrian/cycle bridge at Horotiu and the very...More
This pathway can be used for cycling, walking, running, at your own pace. Personally we walk the dogs, and pass people from all walks of life. We run a B/B just down the road, many of our guests look for somewhere to run before breakfast...More

This is a great walk or cycle, 3.4 km from beginning to the Velodrome...really lovely countryside to view and can see the river a lot of the way. My walk group does this walk to the Velodrome and back regularly. A good cafe at the...More
At the northern end of the ride is a wonderful bike park for all ages. They can choose from the sealed " road layout" with Stop and Give Way signs to the undulating dirt track.
There is even a cafe in the complex = fun...More
