Hutt Valley’s Bike the Trail


Bike the Trail

It’s official – Bike the Trail is geared up for 28 February 2016 starting at 10am! Enjoy an awesome day out cycling along one of the country’s best cycle trails, the Hutt River Trail, part of the Rimutaka Cycle Trail.

There are two routes you can choose to ride, 25km from Harcourt Park in Upper Hutt or 12km from Stokes Valley. Bikers follow the Hutt River as it makes its way down the valley, eventually ending up at Hikoikoi Reserve at the shores of Wellington Harbour.

There you’ll be rewarded with finish line fun, bouncy castles, music, barbecues, games and activities. If you need a bike, they’re available for rental. You can request one as part of registration.

Bike the Trail is a family-friendly cycling event and a great way for families to bike together as the course is mostly flat and away from roads.

This year, participants will also go into a draw to win an Avanti Discovery 1 hybrid bike (worth $1,000) courtesy of Les Mills Hutt City and Avanti Plus Lower Hutt.

Bike the Trail is free to attend, however participants are encouraged to pre-register on the Bike the Trail 2016 website.
