If you're ever in Te Kuiti, the sheep sheering capital of the world,(!!) don't despair. There is a nice little bike trail there. Brook Park is a farm reserve with walking tracks and a 3km bike trail that's worth at least a couple of circuits. It meanders through tree spangled sheep paddocks with enough undulation to give you a workout. It's easy but not a dawdle. If there aren't many people around you'd probably be welcome to ride the walking tracks and across the paddocks too. There are interesting storyboards here and there detailing the farm's history and before-its-time environmental management... Don't run over any sheep!
