Gorges to Sea (Gorgeous to See....) Cycleway
Four trails that loop out from SH1 between Taihape and Himitangi (Gorges to Sea) have been tried and tested and maps of these trails are on the www.rangitikei.com <http://www.rangitikei.com>  website.

Experienced cyclists have told us that cycling through the Rangitikei is superior to other regions they have cycled before and even go so far to say that the Rangitikei is far more thrilling than the well known Otago Railway cycle track.  With its breath-taking scenery and variety of ascents/descents, the Rangitikei offers something for everyone, from a leisurely family outing to an almighty challenge for even the fittest of cyclists.  We would value the public’s feedback on these trails and suggest that keen cyclists get out there and try the trails for themselves. 

To officially launch the cycle trails we have planned a Fun Ride Out      

On Saturday 21st November, Rangitikei Tourism and Bike Rangitikei invite you to join them on the Omatane Trail which starts at the Gorge Road (Bungy) turnoff near Utiku. The ride will finish with a BBQ and refreshments at the Mangaweka Domain. The famous, the ‘foolish’ and local personalities will be involved, so come along and be part of this exciting happening!

All cyclists will be asked to donate at least a gold coin which will go to Aidan Terpstra, a 16 year old Marton competitive mountain biker, who is hoping to be selected for the Mountain Bike Championships in Quebec next year.  Aidan needs to raise money for tickets, expenses and a new bike so your support would be appreciated. Aidan is one of our junior club members.

Meet at Utiku        9:30am 
Cycle starts           10:00am

We look forward to your support, whether it be joining in on the bike ride or assisting in the running of this event in some manner.
