 I know its considered a connector but I usually go Spicer, Te Ara Tai Tonga entering from the old Crash Palace (building) then Doctor to Tumeke. If you looking for the no-hills option then this Easy tour is it Wink

      Tried this with the kids for the first time getting in to mountain biking and this is an awesome track for younger legs and beginners. Track is dry and lots of fun.
