2 Day(s)

Starting in Petone on the shores of Wellington Harbour, this ride spends a day on the banks of the beautiful Hutt River, climbing approximately 100m over a 35km stretch. The Hutt River offers great swimming spots and easy access to Hutt City and the acclaimed Dowse Art Gallery and Museum. In Upper hutt you can enjoy Harcourt Park and explore several Lord of the Rings sites, if you are a fan.Stay the night in Upper Hutt close to the riverbank before riding up and across the Rimutaka Range on the old Rimutaka Rail Trail. During this ride you will enjoy a few small ups and downs but predominantly the climbs are very mild. The Rimutaka Rail Trail has an extensive and interesting history, a treasure for rail buffs and just a beautiful experience for those not so interested in the trains.Whizz down the hill for 7 km into the Wairarapa Valley and into cute Featherston where this ride ends. You can expect 30-40 km of easy-moderate riding each day with only 10km in total on quiet roads.
