Tenth annual Bike The Trail set to ride on 3 March

Get family and friends on their bikes and enjoy a scenic ride along the Hutt River, for the tenth year running of Bike the Trail.

Bike the Trail is a fun, family day out, and this year will be better than ever. There will be breakfasts at both start locations, with rides starting 9.30 am at Harcourt Park and 10.00 am at Stokes Valley. The finish at Hikoikoi reserve will host a big screen, and more free return transport for participants and their bikes.

Bike the Trail is held on Sunday, 3 March. Those interested in attending can register online, and pick up registration packs at our event partner, Mitre 10 MEGA Upper Hutt, or Mitre 10 MEGA Petone. The first 50 registered participants receive a free gift with their pack. There will be registrations on the day, but only pre-registered participants will be eligible for the major spot prizes which are given out at the event.

This year also sees the introduction of a colouring competition, as another way to be part of the fun. Throughout February, people can download the colouring competition image, print, colour, and drop off entries at any Hutt Valley library, Mitre 10 MEGA Upper Hutt, or Mitre 10 MEGA Petone, to be in to win weekly spot prizes.

For full information about the event, and to download the colouring competition image, go to www.bikethetrail.co.nz

With options of riding the full 25 kilometres starting from Harcourt Park, or just half of that starting from Stokes Valley, anyone can enjoy an easy, scenic bike ride down the Hutt River Trail to Hikoikoi Reserve in Petone.

This has proven to be a popular, well-loved event. Upper Hutt City proudly invites you to enjoy our tenth year of Bike the Trail.
