So, you continue on the cycle trail.  Eventually, you will get to some dirt and gravel trails, along with some country roads.  It’s a mix of everything.  If you are going to Waitomo, then, some sections will be pretty rough, and a road bike would not be the correct tool.  However, a mountain bike or a cross bike would be ideal.

this section, with the gravel trail, was hard because it was very steep, and the rear tire couldn’t get enough traction.  you had to really balance your weight between the front and rear to keep forward momentum.  fun though.

Back to Rotorua by that afternoon.  At the mountain bike park for a break, then, the 15 mile ride back to the lodging.  It was a fun trip to do to ride the Te Ara Ahi cycle trail to Waitomo and back.

Zip line time!!
