New Zealand is heaven for cyclists. A network of 22 Great Rides make up the well known NZ Cycle Trails. These are connected by a series “Heartland Rides” Back country routes to take you on the Road less travelled. Green Jersey Explorer tours enables your discovery of New Zealand by bike.

Back Road and Gravel Cycling Tours

Bike packing and gravel riding is increasing in popularity around the world. New Zealand back-country roads offer incredibly scenic and remote touring opportunities. Combining unique accommodation and “real” New Zealand, rather than tourist hot-spots, the result is an unforgettable experience.

Back-country and gravel rides involve 50-70 kilometres riding per day per day. We do not have regular contact with towns during this time. Your guide is also you chef, and your mechanic.

Green Jersey helps you get to remote, less traveled places and ensures you are safe, well fed and watered.

Mountain Biking

Mountainbiking in Wellington and Wairarapa is sublime. We will entertain you with a week of carving up the trails. Huck, shred and smash the trails in the mornings followed by cross country afternoon in remote places. You will ride public parks such as Makara, Mount Victoria, Miramar, Belmont and Wainuiomata. Private Parks at Rivenrock and Dirt Farm are there for the taking. Each day we will finish with hoppy goodness at local brew pubs.
