Tasman Cycle Trail

The Tasman Cycle Trail was the working name of a new trail, now known as Tasman’s Great Taste Trail that will eventually run from Nelson through Richmond to Rabbit Island and now links by ferry to Mapua and the Ruby Coast.

It will continue to Motueka, Riwaka and down the Motueka River to Tapawera. The trail will offer an easy to ride surface and gradient similar to the Otago Central Rail Trail and will cater for a wider range of cyclists (and walkers). As stages of the trail are completed it will eventually offer a choice of day rides or a multiday cycle holiday with a series of overnight stops within the region.

This regional project has received construction funding under John Key’s ‘National Cycleway’, which has the aim of building a series of ‘Great Rides’ around the country to showcase areas of natural beauty and to generate economic activity through tourism.
