The River Trail Loop is a 11km loop on the north side of the Ashburton River. It is used as a race track by the local club and also hosts a 6 hour race annually.

Access Info

The best place to start is under the SH1 bridge on the north side. There is a carpark and some arrows to guide you along the one-way loop. You can also enter the track from the ends of Melrose Road, Chalmers Ave and Trevor's Road. Ask at the local bike shop if unsure - www.cyclerama.co.nz
