The Gentle Annie

The Gentle Annie

This 136km ride takes cyclists from Taihape, the northern gateway to the Rangitikei District, across the Gentle Annie to Fernhill in the Hawke’s Bay. 

A remote, multi-day ride that traverses picturesque high country sheep stations, untouched rugged river valleys and boutique vineyards between the Central North Island and the East Coast.  These two regions are worlds apart in their natural heritage and landscapes, offering a challenging but exhilarating ride that is not for the faint hearted.

Bring your camping gear and experience the best of the magnificent Rangitikei and Hastings Districts.  The climate is changeable so be ready for all weather conditions any time of the year.  There are no towns between Taihape and the Hawkes Bay so good preparation is key to getting the most out of this spectacular trail.
