Full Description

Meet the nzbiketrails team at Cromwell. You will be provided with a route overview, a safety briefing and an introduction to your e-bike, including the assist levels and setting up your seat height. Once ready you will cycle the Lake Dunstan Trail from Cromwell to Clyde - 42km of purpose built trail which was opened in May 2021.

The Dunstan Trail is a Grade 1-3 Trail. The surface is good throughout (compact gravel). There are two 150m climbs which your e-bike will help you to get to the top, with very little effort involved, if you choose to use your high 'power assist' mode!

The trail is a stunning ride, opened in May 2021 - a feat of engineering. You will enjoy riding on the 450m of 'clip-ons' to the mountain side and also over the 85m long Hugo suspension bridge. In total there is about 2.5 hours of actual riding so you have time to briefly stop at the Carrick Winery and Burger Afloat for refreshments along the way.

Repair kit, pump and lock

Rear rack bag


Helmet (with Impact Protection)
