Great bike ride with amazing views. We are not the most experienced mountain bikers ever and decided to bike the full 78 km in two days. We left our car in Opotiki (secure car parking) from where our host Maxine drove us to Matawai. Although there is less climbing involved compared to starting at Opotiki don't expect it to be easy peasy. If you have time go see the Motu Falls as well. We stayed in Toatoa for the night - Maxine and Bob are wonderful hosts and served a lovely dinner in the garden. We very much enjoyed staying with them, it was the best home stay ever! The next day we biked to Opotiki where we enjoyed our packed lunch at the seaside and finished our trip doing the Dunes Trail which has breathtaking views.
