The Te Awa River Ride is one of most accessible and scenic cycling and walking trails in New Zealand. It is the longest concrete path in the country winding its way for 65km from Ngaruawahia to Lake Karapiro following New Zealand’s largest river – the mighty Waikato.

With 65kms of grade 1 & 2 trails at your feet, come and explore The Awa River Ride at your own pace & leisure. Park at the Lake Karapiro Domain where your Riverside Adventures Waikato shuttle will meet you with your E-bike and transport you to the northern point of the trail in Ngaaruawahia or in reverse if you prefer.

Bike From lake and river to waterfalls, along bridges and elevated boardwalks, the Te Awa River Ride showcases parts of the Waikato that have never before been seen – a world-class recreation experience right on our backdoor step.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

We’ve had great customer feedback about the team at Riverside Adventures and what a fantastic time people have had with them. There are many ways to explore the area but we think a combination of walking, riding and kayaking will get the most of it all! Top Tip: The Rhubarb Cafe in Arapuni close to the trails and the Arapuni Swing Bridge is well worth seeking out before you head off on your bikes!
