Ride the Remutaka Incline and on down the Hutt River Trail to Brewtown - the Hutt's craft beer and food wonderland. We'll then shuttle you back to Wellington at your leisure. A challenging ride with a rewarding finish!

We pick you up in our shuttle, and drive you to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa, where you start your adventure with a fun ride along single track through native bush, before climbing up the rail trail to Summit - 
a large grassy plateau perfect for a picnic or well-earned cold drink. Begin your descent down from the ranges, passing through tunnels (headlights provided!) and over bridges, while checking out information boards detailing the enormous task of constructing the old fell railway system. From the end of the rail trail, follow the meandering Hutt River Trail downhill from its source at Kaitoke to Upper Hutt, where you'll finish your ride around 2pm at Brewtown - the Hutt Valley's home of craft beer and food. We'll then pick your bikes up, and be on standby for your shuttle home to Wellington, while you enjoy a well-earned evening.
