Some of our favourite bikepacking routes and back-road cycling tours to inspire your next microadventure.
Here you will find a growing collection of New Zealand bikepacking routes and backroad tours to inspire your next great escape by bike. Some of these trips are short enough for a quick ‘microadventure’ – a swift overnighter or weekend trip that can be fitted into your ‘normal’ life. You’ll find a few longer or more gnarly trips too if you feel up for it!
Check back again soon for updates, or sign up for our newsletter to be in the know when we’ve got a new trip to share.
Got a route to share?
Have you ridden a great route that works well for bikepacking or mainly off-road/back-road touring? Perhaps we can add it to the collection so others can enjoy it too! Route descriptions need a GPX file, some logistical info (see the tabs at the bottom of any route page for example), and of course some great photos to tell the story.
If you’d like to contribute, drop us a line.
