We will meet you at port at the time of your choosing, and shuttle you up to either Maymorn (for a 25km, slightly more challenging ride) or Kaitoke (for an 18km easy ride). Along the way, you’ll be briefed as to what to expect on the trails and from the day. Once you have reached the cycling path, you’ll be set up with an electric bike (eBike) specially selected and customized for these trails. These bikes come equipped with comfortable seats and grips, quality components, headlights for the tunnels, and a rear carrier rack with pannier unit, so you can take your personal effects without needing a bulky backpack. You'll also receive a delicious picnic lunch and bottled water, as well as maps and safety equipment. After a quick safety briefing, your adventure will begin!

On the trail, you’ll start by cycling through the native bird-filled Pakuratahi Forest. Follow an old railway line over bridges and through tunnels, while pausing, if you like, to check out information stations detailing the enormous task of constructing the “Fell” railway system - a first for New Zealand at the time, and one of only a few around the world. Once you reach the summit, you will stop for a picnic lunch on a large grassy plateau next to the remnants of a historic station. After lunch, enjoy an exhilarating (but easily controllable!) descent to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, with views of some of New Zealand’s stunning farming heartland. Meet the shuttle at Cross Creek, or continue biking north to Featherston and The Fell Locomotive Museum, and we'll pick you up along the way before driving you back to your ship.
