Te Awa

The Great New Zealand River Ride

Te Awa has an overarching positioning of lushness, water, rural green landscape and pockets of native bush. When complete, the Great New Zealand River Ride will travel 70 kms along the shoreline of New Zealand’s largest & longest river – the mighty Waikato. With a gentle contour it is an easy ride suitable for all ages and abilities. It is designed to work as a linear route or as a location based route with two key hubs; Hamilton and Cambridge.

Te Awa is being built in sections, with the full 70km expected to be completed in 2015. The sections through Hamilton City and between Cambridge and the start of the rowing course at Lake Karapiro are completed and can be enjoyed now.

The Cambridge to Avantidrome section is Open!

The Cambridge to Avantidrome section of Te Awa is opened on 12th April 2014, with Rt. Hon. Prime Minister John Key in attendance. The opening took place alongside the opening of the Gallagher Bike Skills Park, with a number of children making use of the new facility:
