This is a relaxed half day excursion for all visitors to Gisborne, and the best thing to do while you are in Gisborne!
This is a sheltered 7km ride through a bush clad valley which slowly narrows to the entrance of Tunnel 26. Switch on your lights (all railbikes are fitted with them). The 1.4km long tunnel curves slowly to the left throughout, so you can’t actually see "the light at the end of the tunnel" until you get to the very end!
Once through the tunnel its another kilometre along the flat until you burst out from another short tunnel to the panoramic view out over the Pacific Ocean 140 metres below.
This is "Beach Loop" where we stop for lunch, relax and take in the history of the rail and the region before we turn the bikes around and return to Coop Road.
- 32km, 3 hours in the saddle.
- A moderate fitness level is required - please bring your own lunch and refreshments.
