the Rimutaka Rail Trail

31 10 2009

On the 28th of October my Dad and I cycled the Rimutaka rail trail. We started from the Kaitoke side, cycling up an easy gradient to the summit before cycling down the other side on a much steeper track to Cross Creek. I highly recommend it.


I rode my Mum’s new bike – she assures me its a unisex bike! The only issue I had with it was that it was way too small for me.

Its a pretty easy ride going one way from the Kaitoke side. If you’re looking for something a bit tougher start from the Cross Creek side, or go both ways.
