Richmond to Takaka Hill Top

Nelson Bays

The top of the South Island has some brilliant quiet backroads, great scenery and big climbs. In short, it’s a cyclist’s paradise, and this ride will give you a taste of what it’s like to climb to a mountain top finish. The ride is a sweeping arc that sees you start in Richmond and scythe around to the top of Takaka Hill, only 57 km from your start point.
