Getting outdoors is easy, and fun, if you know how…

Get Outdoors Week (14–22 November), is all about exploring New Zealand’s great outdoors safely and easily. If you’ve always wanted to give it a go but don’t know where to start, then this week is for you! 

There are over heaps of events throughout the country, from a family-friendly walking festival and garden discovery tour, to an epic mountain bike race and wilderness ultra-running event.

Be in to win daily prizes by tagging #GOWeekNZ and @getoutdoorsweek on Instagram and Facebook.


Check out this awesome event being held on one of our Great Rides – the West Coast Wilderness Trail.

Ride the Wilderness, Saturday 14 November. This fab mountain bike ride on the West Coast Wilderness Trail is split into four events ranging from a 21km ‘cruise’ from Kumara to Greymouth to the 126km ‘epic’ along the whole trail.

This is a Grade 2 (easy) ride taking in beautiful lakes, rivers, creeks, boardwalks, singletrack, forest, wetlands and water races. There’s something for everyone. You can ride solo or get a team together. This is a wonderful way to experience this Great Ride!
