We rode from Te Aroha to Waihi and back in one day, having hired bikes in Te Aroha. It is a very well maintained track. It is probably best to use a mountain or comfort bike with wider tyres as it is all gravel. The cattle grids are quite narrow but save you from having to get off your bike at every fence. The highlight was the gorge which warrants getting off to explore the mine shafts on foot ; take a head torch. We had a break at the Waikino station cafe which served excellent food. There was also quite a bit of wildlife to spot. Over all an enjoyable day out on mostly flat and traffic free paths.
