Have you been on (all or part of) the Remutaka Cycle Trail this summer?

Let's hope your answer is "YES” and WellingtonNZ keen to hear about your experience.

Please take a few minutes to let them know what you thought in this short online survey. Your feedback will help them to make your next experience on this Great Ride even better. Plus the number of completed surveys directly impacts future funding for trail enhancements.

If your answer is "NO" then put the Remutaka Cycle Trail on your bucket list as this is our region’s Nga Haerenga/Great Ride. It runs from Petone foreshore along the Hutt River Trail, over the Rail Trail to the Wairarapa, down to Ocean Beach, and around the Wild Coast to Orongorongo. You can dip in for a short experience on any section or take a few days to ride the whole trail.

Hot tip – bikes are free on trains and East by West Ferries, or you can hire a bike and arrange shuttles through our Official Trail partners.

The competition encouraged hunters to “cull” the cats, which could not be easily trapped, take a picture, send it to Fish & Game and be in to win a prize.
Fish and Game have apologised but asked hunters to continue help curb feral cat numbers,

Or is the lag only in recognition? Our culture sees travel, romance, war, and children's writing is capable of literary excellence and worthy of academic study, but sports writing stays stuck in the back pages. Roger Robinson (When Running Made History), Suzanne McFadden (Striking Gold), and Keith Quinn (A Lucky Man) argue that New Zealanders can write as well about the sport as they can practice it.
