Single Day

Great Taste Single Day Rides

Experience the magic of Nelson and come cycling on the Great Taste Trail. Our company is located close to the trail, among trees, gardens and old farm buildings. We are close to the craft breweries and are within easy cycling distance of the wine country. Choose an all-inclusive self-guided beer or wine ride, or book a freedom ride and do it your own way. We provide maps for all our rides and guarantee you will get a warm welcome, experienced advice and excellent bikes – for a great day. Come and share our Nelson.
