Mountain Biking Rimutaka Rail Trail
#183 of 381 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#10043 in the world
A relatively gentle climb up an old rail line (now graveled) through a beautiful valley with the high point being the pitch-black tunnels you go through. (Take a torch/head lamp).
Its not going to technically challenge anyone but its an enjoyable ride.
