Last month the Waimārama Road off-road cycle trail was officially opened, completing the Tukituki loop section of the Landscapes Ride, one of the most attractive trail rides in the region.
Construction of the 2.5km limestone trail between Te Mata Road and Craggy Range Winery, began in January this year, aimed at improving safety for cyclists and motorists on this busy stretch of road.
Hastings mayor Sandra Hazlehurst says the new track is about keeping people safe, while enjoying looking out over the Tukituki Valley.
“People can get out in nature and safely explore this beautiful part of our district with access to Craggy Range Winery, Red Bridge Coffee, and many beautiful sights.”
She acknowledged all of those who had been part of the project, including the property owners who worked with council over the trail alignments and land requirements, and mana whenua who had been part of the conversation for many years.
The Landscapes Ride is part of the 200km Hawke’s Bay Trails network, and wayfinding signage that tells people a little more of the history of the area and will add to the interest and enjoyment of this beautiful slice of Hawke’s Bay.
The project was jointly funded by Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment, Hastings District Council, Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, and Eastern Central Community Trust.
Being such a new track, the surface is quite soft so users are asked to please use caution when riding it. It will pack down fully and harden in time.
