nearby bicycle rides

In January 2016 the sea was rough and dangerous due to distant cyclones causing huge swells. The sun shone brightly and the sea temperature was warm, the waves were dumpers and there were strong rips.

It was still OK to swim in the lagoon, but for a change it was good to get out and explore by bicycle.

We cycled from Waihi Train station to the Ohinemuri Winery in the Karangahake Gorge along the Hauraki Rail Trail. Note: Lights on bicycles required for the 1km tunnel

And from Waihi Beach to Bowentown. Followed by lunch at the popular Flat White Cafe.
