Bring your own, lunch, snacks, water, money for coffee stop and winery. Change of clothes for swim at rockslide.

Although you can ride this trail yourself our itinary makes it a great social day out. The purpose of the support van is to get you back and if you are finding the hill climbs too challenging throw your bike on the trailer and watch the others work out.

We start with morning tea at the Living waters cafe, have lunch at the Rere Rock Slide.. tubes and boogie boards are brought along for the slide experience. 2klm up the road is an ideal photo opportunity at the Rere Falls. Our 62klm ride finishes at Ngatapa unless you want to continue another 10klm flat ride to the wineries where we have antipasto dishes with our wine tasting.
