Cycling the Great Taste Trail


Up and Down Dale with a lot of flat! That’s how I would describe our 3 day cycle trip from Nelson to Kaiteriteri following the Great Taste Trail. Passing through & by vineyards, pasture lands, ocean, mud flats, towns, creeks, bays, forest and ending with our jaunt through the Mountain Bike Park at Kaiteriteri. Along this route there are many delicious places to refuel the body whether that be for coffee or food – Grape Escape, Jesters, Bloom Café and Toad Hall just to name a few. The towns we passed through had many artisan or provedore shops to peruse and purchase. 

Each day starts off on flat ground and then you do begin to climb; but, with the beautiful scenery before you, you can stop and take all the photo’s you want, catch your breath and begin the climb again knowing that at the end you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful vista. Our gentle cycling agenda suited our fitness level, though I don’t have any experience on a mountain bike trail and this did prove daunting for me and I fell off my bike twice in the space of 3 km despite being on the Easy Rider trail! Regardless of how my 3 days finished scraped, sore and bleeding I would highly recommend riding the Great Taste Trail.
