The Little River Rail Trail track is one of the easiest and most picturesque rides on the Banks Peninsula that mostly follows the route of an old 19th century railway line between Hornby and Little River via Prebbleton, Lincoln, Motukarara and Birdlings Flat.

If you are interested in skipping the city and getting straight to the goods, check out our shuttle to and from Motukarara, where you will bike from Motukarara to Little River and back with a shuttle ride from Christchurch to Motukarara and back. Click here for more details.

If you get midway through your ride and think you've bitten off more than you can chew, give us a call and we'll come pick you up wherever you are on the trail starting from $95.

The Rail Trail takes you through a changing landscape that has seen a thousand years of human history. It passes through rural areas and settlements on the Canterbury Plains, skirts past the massive flanks of the ancient volcanoes which make up Banks Peninsula, and hugs the shoreline of a vast lagoon, Te Waihora or Lake Ellesmere, and its smaller twin, Te Roto o Wairewa or Lake Forsyth.

It is an ideal gateway-ride if you want to try your hands at cycle-touring; the terrain is mostly flat and the conditions quite forgiving. The length of the trail is 49km which makes an easy ride, especially on our fleet of comfortable e-bikes.

Prices include the use of an electric bike, helmet, lock and a shuttle service either to or from Little River, depending on your preference.

The start and end point is at Chill Urban Tours, Ground Floor, Awly Building. 287 Durham St North, Christchurch, unless otherwise arranged.
