Cycling in New Zealand

Share


Cycling is one of the best ways to discover New Zealand. Be sure to hire one of our bike racks and pack your bikes for your campervan trip. With an abundance of country trails, mountain bike routes, and towns to explore, adding cycling into your itinerary will add even more to your trip!

There truly is a cycle trail for everyone in New Zealand, from beginners and rusty riders to experienced, adrenaline-seeking types. The various trails in New Zealand showcase the country's diverse scenery and will take you from small towns to remote wilderness.

Our favourite Short Easy Bike Rides

​Park up your campervan, hop on your bike and enjoy the varied landscapes and routes of these easy bike rides.

With the recreational cyclist in mind, all rides are less than two hours, covering safe routes that are flat or have very gentle climbs. From iconic tourist spots to quieter local attractions, beaches, parks and plenty of scenic spots are all covered. Combine these easy-to-access cycle itineraries with the convenience of a campervan holiday and fun, relaxed bike adventures are a breeze. These trails come from the Kennett Brother’s cycle guidebook Short Easy Bike Rides. ​
