Nine Mile Beach to Rewanui Incline – a day of Contrasts


huff, puff, huff, puff……. oh why do I do this to myself.  Out for a bike ride – it’s been a while for me after heading out for a road ride a couple of weeks back in what started out as a lovely day but soon got caught in cold showers so developed a head cold.  There went any mountain biking for a while.  Feeling better now and with a gorgeous day today thought we bike up Rewanui Incline – a nice spin for the legs – between the huffing and puffing.

Early start this morning with a walk on the Nine Mile beach before guest breakfasts.  Such a glorious morning with some wonderful cloud formations – a nice way to start the day.

Breakfast over, guests off on their next adventure and rooms cleaned so with time on our hands we headed out for a spin up the Rewanui Incline.  Nice and close to home without having to the load the bikes in the car.  Starts with a ride along the road before heading up the off railway line and up the valley.

Couple of tunnels to pass through and loads of waterfalls after all the recent rain.

One of the many joys of living on the West Coast – constant contrasts without having to travel very far – that’s why we call it living in paradise and it has been voted on the top ten regions in the world to visit by Lonely Planet.
