Coffee Shop

“If you fancy a shopping fix this is an alternative to Nelson city, especially on a rainy as a major part of it is undercover. Its just like a small traditional Mall. It has a Food Court but there are also restaurants and cafes just outside. Nelson itself has overhangs over most shops so shopping in the rain is manageable too. Large stores that aren't in Nelson: Kmart Pak & Save ”

Riders will pass vineyards, breweries,orchards and no end of places to stop and enjoy some quality cuisine. The complete trail is 174km long, two thirds of which is currently off-road trails but it can easily be broken down into bite sized portions just right for short morning rides and gentle afternoon cruises.
