Rere Express | Supported

This one day escape starts in the hills at Rere Rockslide, the famous 60m-long natural rockslide which features on the 100 ‘must do’ list in NZ.

Suitable for year round travel | Spectacular in autumn and spring | Grade 2 – Intermediate 


You will be transferred to Rere Rockslide, where you can slide down a 60m-long natural slope (free of charge but you need something to slide on and will do so at your own risk, or you can just watch others).  Once you’ve had your adrenalin fix you can head off on your bike for a more relaxed visit to the spectacular Rere Falls.  A great spot where you can enjoy your picnic lunch.  After lunch is a 14 km hilly ride to Eastwoodhill Arboretum, stop, enjoy a walk around the magnificent gardens.  When you are ready, get on your bike, and prepare for a change of pace as you head down Ngatapa Hill, an exhilarating downhill.  Wind your way back to Gisborne through the productive Poverty Bay Flats, home to quality vineyards and wineries.  Make your way to the Sunshine Brewery, Gisborne’s iconic craft brew house.

This tour offers intermediate riding and you will travel +/- 50 kilometers.
