Your adventure starts at our Nelson City depot at 8:30am, where you will be fitted to your bikes and briefed before you board our trail transport by road at 9:00am. At 1352 metres long, the Spooner’s Tunnel is the longest tunnel open to cyclists in the southern hemisphere. The old rail corridor into Richmond is unique and the amazing scenery combined with the peace and tranquility of the countryside must be experienced. From Richmond, Mapua is approximately 15km. Enjoy the views from the coastal boardwalks of the Waimea Estuary and fertile farmland. The trail takes you along the main beach of Rabbit Island where you will come to the Ferry landing. A short trip across the channel on the iconic Mapua Ferry lands you at the Mapua Wharf.
