This section of the Landscapes Ride teems with creativity and activities to do and is affectionately known as the Kidnappers Coast.

Good to Know:

  • Phone coverage is good on this section of the trail.
  • Go slow and use care with underpass areas - bridge approaches and trail edges can be steep and uneven.
  • When trail surface change from trail to short sections of road, always look for the cycle trail sign posts.

Start from Clive, where there is plenty of parking, toilets, coffee and supplies. Follow the trail beside the Waitangi Regional Park wetlands and along the coastal corridor before passing under Black Bridge at Tukituki River and over the clip-on crossing.

As you reach Haumoana, remember to check out the native breeding ground for whitebait. Follow the green bikes on the short road section to connect back to the off-road coastal trail. Follow the trail to Te Awanga and the quaint back streets of this popular surf spot before the push to Clifton - the gateway to Cape Kidnappers.
