Overnight Cycle Trips In The Lower North Island.

Postby Malcy on Mon 10/Nov/14 11:05pm

So I just got a wee Phillips single wheel trailer for my bike.

Me and CJ are going for an overnight to the Rimutakas in Jan. Just wondering if there are a few other similar type rides that lead towards a campsite, maybe a couple, for a jaunt or three.

Thinking QCW too, for me. Be great for CJ too, but she is a way off that for now.

You could carry on down to the DOC camp site at Ocean Beach. Then around the Wild Coast cycle route (more hike a bike than normal last weekend) and up to the DOC campsite at Catchpool on the Wainuiomata Coast Road.

So CJ is six, can do about 10km at a go. Was thinking ride in, camp, ride out.

It doesn't look like catchpool has a bike option?

Lots of nice bike-to-camp options around White Rock, but got to get the weather right as is very exposed
