More Great Taste Trail

The Great Taste Trail just got even greater, with the opening of the newest section to Brightwater, a pretty little village 21 km from Nelson city centre. The beer at the village pub is chilled and ready for some serious thirst-quenching, the impressive new blue suspension bridge is primed and ready and the blue trail markers are up.

From The Gentle Cycling Company HQ, it’s a gentle 15km or so to the pub in the village of Brightwater, and the vineyards along the way are a very satisfying distraction.  The lovely cafe at Waimea Estates vineyard is open 7 days all year.
