We collect your group from anywhere in the North Island (Auckland and South) and make our way to the King Country and ride across to Taranaki around in a loop, back to the start.
This itinerary is an exploratory cycle tour. It takes in the Forgotten World Highway and backroads to the Taranaki Coast the Back through to the King Country.
This Itinerary is set for three days and includes a mixture of sealed and gravel roads. We only graze civilisation, so will be fully self-sufficient during the tour.
We will colect your group from anywhere between Wellington and Auckland in the North Island and transport you to Taumaranui, where we spend the night before starting the ride.
Ohura to Whangamomona is a quiet road, through rolling countryside. You will ride approximately 60km on a variety of surfaces and stay the night at the famous Whangamomona Hotel
We leave Whanhgamomona and ride across the saddles toward Stratford, but take a sneaky right turn onto Junction Road and enjoy some hilly sections through to Waitara and the Taranaki Coast.
We shuttle to th start of the Ohura Road, rather than cycling on the State Highway.
Oour road takes us from the West Coast back into the central North Island on quiet country Roads. A 20km (return distance) diversion takes us to our lunch spot at Damper Falls.
We ride out and return for an evening in Taumaranui, or another location depending where you started.
