Information & Equipment Hire

Visit the Ōpōtiki and Gisborne i-SITE Visitor Centres before your ride to understand the current track conditions and be aware of any hazards along the way.  

There you can also pick up a free printed version of the online brochures  – they are large foldouts, which makes the map easier to navigate. Having a printed version also creates a handy backup in case your devices lose their charge.

One of the most helpful resources to download onto your phone before you hit the trails is the NZ Great Rides app – it has over 1500 pages of content. You’ll find elevation profiles, trail descriptions, photos, and maps that work offline using mobile GPS.
