Freewheel is a fast flowing single track taking you from the Towai Trig to the Wainuiomata Hill Rd summit.

Freewheel traverses the western side of the hill (the Hutt side). It is fast flowing with an array of jumps, drops, switchbacks, shoots, banked turns, and lots of lovely gorse to catch you if come off and fall down the hill.

Access Info

Access is from the ECNZ 4x4 access road. You can either ride up the access road, ride Labyrinth until the Spoonhill/Towai Traverse junction and join the access road or ride to the end of Towai Traverse. At the end of Towai Traverse turn left (south) and follow the access road until you see the entrance to Freewheel on the right (across a little wooden bridge).
