Nelson cycling tours

Nelson – the Cycling Capital of New Zealand.

Nelson already has well established cycle trails with some 30Km of urban cycle corridors in place already. These trails allow riders to access a variety of local attractions such as the coastal beaches, the boulder bank, the rivers and reserves that nestle behind the Grampians and of course the Nelson and Richmond facilities such as parks, theatres, sports grounds, cafes, bars and restaurants.
