This is a great track for all ages and all types of cycles - it has a good surface, no serious climbing, and easy to do the loop and get back to your car or carry on along the beach.

Pleasant scenery as you wind your way around the path. Begin and end at the Estuary Arts Centre and you can have refreshments at the little cafe and enjoy the current exhibition. Alternatively, head over the road to the fantastic Orewa beach.

Hi, Yes you can in Orewa town near the cycle path. As we use our own cycles I can't tell you the cost.
