The Twin Coast Cycle Trail is 87 km long running from Opua on the East Coast to Horeke on the West. This is divided into four sections and can be ridden in either direction.
The heart & central point of the cycle trail is Kaikoke and Kaikohe is also the high ground at 200 meters above sea level. Opua & Horeke are the beginning & the end of the cycle trail and both ends are at sea-level. Therefore it’s worth considering starting at the center being Kaikohe & descend in either direction to Opua or Horeke. On your second day choose the other direction.
With Twin Coast Adventures based in Kaikohe. It’s easy for our team to send one of our shuttle coaches with a bike trailer to pick up & return you to Kaikohe. We also provide a shuttle service to travel the other way around.
We note that the trail goes through some diverse and stunning scenery with spectacular views, but it also takes you on a fascinating journey through some of New Zealand’s earliest Maori and European settlements. The storyboards along the way bring to life the history and stories of the local people.
