About the path
A scenic ride combining Henderson Creek, local reserves and a section of the North Western Cycleway.
You'll mainly be riding on shared paths and the route is relatively flat, so this is a good leisure circuit for building your confidence on a bike.
Start at Te Pai Park, just off Lincoln Road. The park features a huge skate park and a children's playground.
At the end of Te Pai Place, cross Central Park Drive and turn left. Just before Trusts Arena, turn right and follow the path through the park, past the Trust Stadium playground.
Take a left just after the Central Park Drive bridge to join the Henderson Creek Shared Path. Henderson Creek was once a hive of activity for traders, vintners, farmers, orchardists and families. Along the shared path you'll pass local parks, artworks and outdoor exercise equipment.
Turn left onto the North Western Cycleway, and cycle until Lincoln Road. The Lincoln Road section of the route (around 150m) is not a shared path, so we recommend dismounting if you're not confident cycling on the busy road.
Turn left back onto Central Park Drive. The shared path crosses a number of roads, so take care of turning cars. Follow the path alongside the Trust Stadium athletic park, and then back to the starting point at Te Pai Place.
